"(AP) — A doctor who bought a Connecticut home that's a replica of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello says he's a history buff and an admirer of the Founding Fathers. Friendly's restaurant chain co-founder S. Prestley Blake is a longtime admirer of Jefferson and had the home built for $7.7 million in 2014 just before his 100th birthday.", www.seattlepi.com
"The mansion was built by S. Prestley Blake, a co-founder of the Massachusetts-based Friendly's restaurant chain and a longtime admirer of Jefferson. The listing agent, Sherri Milkie of William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty, tells The Republican newspaper of Springfield, Massachusetts, that the 10,000-square foot home in Somers was sold Tuesday to a local doctor. Blake, who lives a few doors down on adjacent property connected by a horse trail, said in 2014 when the house was built that he hoped it would be a source of pride for the town on the Massachusetts state line.", www.chron.com
"Historians at the real Monticello in Virginia estimate that Jefferson spent about $100,461 to build Monticello over 28 years. That number doesn't count goods and services bartered and traded or grown and gathered on site, and does not count the cost of feeding and clothing Jefferson's slave labor, according to the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.", www.masslive.com
