Our countriy’s History is something we all need to know and remember. The Slave Tour includes details of slave life forgotten or unknown by many.

This was very interesting and informative. There are benches to sit and listen to the tour guide recant the days of slavery on a plantation and the life of the slaves. Its a shady spot on a hot day.

Interesting area where all the craftsman plied their trade while employed by the Jeffersons. There are some old building relics and the recreations of the buildings used for carpentry, smithing, barrel making, etc.

don't bother even going to Monticello if you are not going to also take this outside tour. I mean, there is no point in only doing it half way.
