Pantops Mountain is in Albemarle County, directly east of Charlottesville across the Rivanna River. In 1777, Thomas Jefferson purchased some of the land for use as a farm.

According to Edward C. Mead, "Pantops--formerly written 'Pant-Ops'--was therefore, so named by Mr. Jefferson from two Greek words...meaning 'all-seeing,' significant of the extended view from its summit."[1] [2]
