We were expecting more structures to be standing, else it would've been a 5. The dependencies were amazing, and really let you go back in time.

The tourguides at Monticello are exceptionally educated not only in the history of Monticello, but in the art of storytelling, as well. Not to be missed!

Plan to include Mulberry Row in your visit to Monticello. You can't really get the whole picture of this time period without trying to imagine what it was like for everyone.

This tour is free with your ticket to Monticello, but as others have noted, there are just a few ruins to see. The garden area of Mulberry Row itself is quite beautiful, filled with huge vegetables. I was surprised at the fertile soil here, given its redness. It was raining the day we were here and the path was very... More

This is part of Thomas Jeffersons Monticello. And a very historical aspect filled with the respect that it deserves. The tour was fact filled and extremely interesting. The tall mulberries in which you walk beneath allow one to transport themselves back to the day they were planted and the maps that lay out the positions of the homes and the... More

This tour is included with the price of admission to Monticello. It is well worth the 45-50 minutes. Our guide was most informed, friendly & enjoyed what his duties. He didn't avoid any of the unpleasant topics or questions related to the times. Plan on taking the tour before viewing the house. Very informal tour as you are pretty much... More

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.

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... More
