"I have my house to build, my feilds to form, and to watch for the happiness of those who labor for mine," Jefferson declared in 1793. During his lifetime, Jefferson owned more than 600 enslaved people and hired more than 100 white artisans to work on his plantations. Of those, Monticello staff historians have identified 87 known individuals who likely lived and worked on Mulberry Row. The biographies of some of these enslaved workers, hired white artisans, indentured servants, free blacks, hired slaves, and members of Jefferson’s household are chronicled here. Their lives and stories convey the complex and dynamic world of Monticello’s main plantation street.
