This spring Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest celebrated three things: the 40th anniversary of its rescue; the completion of the architectural restoration after 34 years; and the retirement of Travis McDonald who has led the restoration team. Travis's book, Poplar Forest: Thomas Jefferson's Villa Retreat, was published in April by the University Press of Virginia. Recently the restoration project has been honored with the John Russell Pope Award from the Institute of Classical Art and Architecture, and the Founder's Award from Preservation Virginia. Recent articles have appeared in the Decorative Arts Trust Magazine, the Washington Post, Virginia Living Magazine, and Period Homes Magazine. Well-known VAF members who served on the Architectural Advisory Panel (1988-2022) include Edward Chappell, Orlando Ridout, John Larson, Bob Self, and Al Chambers.
