This is a row of sites upon which formerly stood buildings that were built for specific functions such as nail-making, a privy for slaves, and so on. Now there are only the foundations. Mulberry Row is on a terrace below the Monticello mansion and directly above the experimental vegetable garden, which is fabulously interesting. Sitting here and looking at the view and listening to the guide of the Enslaved People's tour, it's so easy to imagine what the lives of the slaves were like back under Jefferson. Nothing I've read in books makes history as alive as a trip to the places where it all happened, and Monticello is the best.
