Located between the Appalachian Mountains and Blue Mountains. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison both lived in the surrounding countryside. Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia in 1814, one of the first public colleges in America. The city was settled in 1760s but did not gain importance until the early 1800s. Many historic structures still survive, and the university has some of the best examples of early American architecture.
