    Yeah, I know; kind of a boring issue, but, I'm going to Monticello (Charlottesville,Virginia) on my way to a retirement event at the Pentagon. Can I put the unloaded gun in the trunk at the parking lot?

    I, of course, meant the parking lot of Monticello, a National Park, and NOT the Pentagon. I tried to edit the thread, but that little arrow just kept circling.

    wlynn,

    Having grown up in Charlottesville, we take our children to visit the grandparents there a few times each year.

    According to the official website, Monticello is privately owned and operated. Here is a link.

    About the Thomas Jefferson Foundation and Monticello

    Since it is private land, I would think you are bound by whatever postings they have related to firearms. I don't remember seeing any when I was there, nor do I remember any metal detectors, or even security.

    Hopefully, someone else will chime in on this one also. I would hate for you to leave your weapon in your car when you don't have to.

    I guess you could call to verify if it is federal, or state, property in some way, but the website clearly states it is not.

    I hope you enjoy your trip.
