We learned alot from the demonstrations along the row. The history of each slave home and what they had to endure each day to make Jeffersons home to his ideal was inspiring. The home would not be what it was or is today without the...More

Just to be clear, I'm not sure why Mulberry Row has its own Trip Advisor page. This is really just a part of the grounds on the Jefferson Plantation at Monticello about 100 feet from the house. That being said, it has a nice period...More

In process of restoration but what is there is worthwhile. On grounds of Monticello so you'll see it all.

Experienced two different guides, one was extremely informative on all aspects of Mulberry Row, the other seemed to be more exasperated about slavery in general - I preferred the former to the latter, I actually dropped off the tour.

The tour of Mulberry Row was done by an excellent tour guide. She used interactive techniques to make the information concerning slavery during the time of Thomas Jefferson very very interesting. Was friendly, and very knowledgeable. Learned very much --well worth the time!
