While Jefferson is the name most closely associated with the University's founding and the design of the Grounds, he did not work alone. Indeed, hundreds of skilled workmen and artisans built the University brick by brick, giving physical form to Jefferson's great plan. Their labor formed the backbone of a site recognized internationally as one of the world's great architectural masterpieces.
The story of the construction of the University and the role played by the builders along with lists of the tasks and individuals involved can be found on the Museum's blog: Building a Living Legacy.
