Mulberry Row: Monticello’s Main Street
Event At A Glance
Discover the sights and sounds of Mulberry Row, Monticello’s main plantation road, during our Mulberry Row: Monticello’s Main Street weekends. Mulberry Row was the hub of the plantation’s domestic and light manufacturing activities performed largely by Thomas Jefferson’s enslaved African American workers. This four-part series offers a visual and interactive interpretation of Mulberry Row. Held on four weekends from June through October each program offers a different glimpse into life on the plantation. Topics include gardening, crafts, culture and animal husbandry.

Kids can enjoy games, storybooks, crafts and other hands-on activities in our Mountaintop Activities Center. Join guided tours of Mulberry Row and learn more about the lives of enslaved African Americans who lived and worked there.
