Whitetail deer are often seen on Monticello mountain. A proud stag’s head in solid brass makes a highly distinctive doorknocker. 9"h x 4"w x 3 1/2"d.
In his Memoirs of a Monticello Slave, Isaac Jefferson claims that Thomas Jefferson refused to hunt the deer population that was abundant atop his mountain. Whenever Jefferson heard hunters down in his deer park, Isaac Jefferson says that his master would go to the park with his gun and “order ‘em out.”
