24/7 Wall St.: America’s Richest Presidents

2. Thomas Jefferson

Net worth: $212 million
In office: 1801 to 1809
3rd president

Jefferson was left 3,000 acres and several dozen slaves by his father. Monticello, his home on a 5,000-acre plantation in Virginia, was one of the architectural wonders of its time. He made considerable money in various political positions before becoming president, but was mired in debt towards the end of his life.
