Monticello Road Audio Tour: Ghost Road Stop

The Monticello Road cell phone audio tour will provide visitors and residents with a deeper experience and appreciation of one of America's most interesting neighborhoods.

It will consist of a series of nine narrated tour stops along the length of Monticello Road, each with a sign including a phone number and/or a QR code that will call audio narrations about the sites in the voices of the local people. If all goes according to plan, geolocation will also be available.

The project is expected to be ready this summer, at which time we'll produce a map and a series of public events.

For now, take a listen to Stop #9, which explores the historic extension of the road, past its dead end at Moore's Creek.

The Monticello Road Audio Tour is an extension of the Charlottesville Audio Tour in cooperation with Charlottesville Historic Resources and Preservation. Special thanks to Chris Gensic for narrating this clip. Monticello Road is an art/community project in Charlottesville Virginia.
