The earliest structures on Mulberry Row supported the construction of Monticello I . In the joiner’s shop, carpenters and joiners made almost all of the woodwork for the main house.  Enslaved families occupied the “Negro quarter” and two other large log dwellings while hired artisans lived in the workmen’s house. Jefferson lived in what is now known as the South Pavilion until about 1774.
