About usIn 1921, a brick Georgian Mansion was built for the Joseph Allen Wheat family, who had moved from Staunton, VA, to Charlottesville. The original mansion, known as Ackley House, occupied part of a forest that was cleared. Consisting of a front foyer area, formal living room, parlor, and six rooms on the second floor, the original house was sold in 1956 to Hunter Perry. Mr. Perry’s mission was to make additions and donate the property as a retirement home for professional people. In an excerpt taken from the book That Light We See: A Memoir-History of Martha Jefferson House, Mary Scott Parker Blake describes how the Perry Foundation began. Martha Jefferson House is a multilevel retirement community that offers a unique, close-knit and extraordinary living environment to all of its retired residents.
