Mulberry Row Tours

Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello comprised far more than just the founding father’s grand house. It was also a working plantation with myriad supporting players—including slaves—and buildings. Mulberry Row was the industrial center of Monticello, located a few hundred feet from the main house. Mulberry trees, homes, storehouses and work places lined the 1,000-foot stretch of lane where both free workers and slaves lived and toiled. The people on Mulberry Row handled manufacturing for Monticello, performing jobs like metal-smithing, weaving cloth and carpentry. Today visitors can see the sites and ruins of various structures, like the stable, forge, nailery, gardens, and also the recreated Hemings Cabin, as part of the Slavery at Monticello tour.
