Sad, decent people working terrible long hours. Truly a glimpse into the world of slavery. Interesting side note, the family in the grand house or the family on Mulberry Row, they all at some point during a day sat on a wooden board with a hole in it.

you cant learn what you need to on your own. the life and times of inhabitants at Monticello is discussed in depth on the slavery tour. (also visit the cafe in the main visitor center for lunch. they have great food, drinks, dessert and a place to relax before or after your tours)

We would have liked to see more. There are very few building here and part of what they had was closed. It would be nice if they would try and build more.

Good discussions on slavery in Monticello and in Virginia. Good discussion of Jefferson's conflicts in his writings and in his holding slaves thru out his life.

This is the partially restored homes and workshops of the Slaves who labored at Monticello. As I referred to in another review, spend the 45 minutes to join the guided tour of Mulberry Row. Our guide kept us engaged with the stories of life on Mulberry Row and we were sad that the tour was done after the "fastest 45... More

Mulberry row is a new exhibit at Monticello with two reconstructed slave cabins. our 45 minute tour was excellent and informative. there's enough interaction to keep a six-year-old pretty interested.

Interesting history that Monticello shows. Bringing the slave experience to life with guided tours is and excellent idea. It really provides a tangible piece of history.

Mulberry Row is the section of Monticello where Jefferson's enslaved servants lived and worked. Admission is through the ticket to Monticello. Our excellent guide was quite knowledgable and honest about this unthinkable aspect of our nation's history. Its horrors become much more real in this bucolic setting. More buildings are being reconstructed each year thanks to the work of archeologists.... More
