“Very interesting story”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

There is no much to see but it was a very moving experience. The gentleman that gave us the tour did a superb job explaining life at the time and slavery.

“History imagined”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The trees stand tall, marking Jefferson's realized vision for this community mall, along which dwelt the workers enslaved and free that made his plantation run, but of them and the structures they inhabited only traces remain today -- foundations of the buildings, plaques and maps to mark what was. However, Monticello and particularly Mulberry row are active archaeological sites. We observed a dig in progress near the base of Mulberry Row, where the foundations of an old wall are being excavated and investigated, to determine whether the curve in Mulberry Row—which deviated from the straight line Jefferson inscribed on his landscape plan—was permitted during his lifetime or occurred later. A certain degree of reconstruction takes place at Monticello to make the site better reflect how it truly was in TJ's time.

“Mulberry - A step back in Time”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Very educational and authentic. The existing layout of the houses and old stone basements were humbling. It is filled with historical information so come prepared to walk and read.
