This is a part of your stop at Monticello but because there is not a lot to see and you need to do it as a tour many people overlook it. But this is where much of the active excavations and work is happening currently on the property and it's a huge aspect of how people lived at Monticello given that the majority of the residents were not members of Jefferson's immediate family but were the enslaved people who served that family and worked the land there. This area explores their lives and gives a whole new view of Monticello, one which many might not want to see, but which I think brings a more complete picture of life in Colonial America.
