Description
As part of Jefferson's design for UVA's Academical Village, professors lived and taught in unique Pavilions, which each served as a distinct model of architectural ideals. Pavilion Ten features Doric ornamental elements inspired by Roland Freart de Chambray's illustration of the Roman Theater of Marcellus. An original rooftop parapet was removed in the 1890s, but rebuilt and replaced in 2010. The first resident was Dr. Robley Dunglison, Jefferson's personal physician and the nation's first Professor of Medicine.
