Over several decades, the NEH has supported archaeological research and the development of new exhibitions at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the World Heritage Site, museum, and research institute located in rural Virginia. These grants have had an outsized impact on the local economy as Monticello welcomes nearly 400,000 annual visitors, 93% of whom were from outside of Virginia. Fifty percent of them stayed in a hotel for at least one night, contributing no less than $13.1 million to the local economy.
