We have been going to Monticello for two decades and have enjoyed seeing Mulberry Row be exposed as the archeologists and historians did their work. Nicely done - not overly restored or fancied up. Gives a good perspective on the lives of enslaved peoples.

This was an amazing look back in time on how a Southern Plantation functioned. With 135 of the 175 people living and working on the Monticello plantation being slaves, it’s a lesson in history that shouldn’t be overlooked. Whether you take the self directed or...More
