Mulberry Row contained the cabins where the slaves who worked at the Monticello house lived and worked. The research (archaeological and historical conducted during the past 20+ years has turned up impressive information concerning these people. This is definitely worth seeing!

This was a very interesting stop on the Monticello tour, you could almost feel the slaves and overseers when listening to the tour guides.

Stroll along the same path housing the slaves & craftsmen. There is a reproduction of the Hemmings cabin off the path & the original Stone Stable! Take the guided tour (free), it's well worth the time!

Interesting as an additional part of the overall Monticello visit - lots of work still to be done to make this a top class visit

If you're touring Monticello, be sure to visit Mulberry Row and to take the Slavery at Monticello tour. Life at Monticello is quite interesting and the docents really know their Jefferson history so come with questions!

This is on the grounds of the Monticello and part of your admission price. Don't leave without hearing the guides give presentations, The history of this place is really remarkable. Well worth your time.

The guides over at Monticello will have you moved over the true story of both maters and slaves over there. That was a fatastic visit, unexpectedly so considering the subject.
