Monticello

The city of Monticello was founded in 1849 and is presumably named after the Virginia home of President Thomas Jefferson. Also, many early settlers in Drew county were families who were originally from Virginia. The town was incorporated in 1852, and is the home of the University of Arkansas at Moniticello.
