Digital model of a possible dwelling (MRS-4)

<strong>Excavation of an unnamed slave dwelling, built around 1809.</strong>A small wood dwelling for enslaved people was built on the eastern part of the site of the smokehouse/dairy after these functions moved to the newly completed South Terrace wing in 1809. Unnamed by Jefferson, archaeologists call it Mulberry Row Structure 4 (MRS-4).
