Carter Mountain adjoins Monticello and is a Virginia "Century Farm" that has been farmed for over a hundred years.  In 1771, in exchange for legal services for Edward Carter, Thomas Jefferson was to receive “as much of his (Carter’s) mountain as can be seen from mine, and 100 yards beyond the lines of sight agreed before Captain Burton. This land is owned by Monticello and is adjacent to Carter Mountain Orchard.
