Landscape of Slavery: Mulberry Row at Monticello

Mulberry Row at Monticello

This outdoor, site-based exhibition tells the stories of Mulberry Row, the dynamic, industrial hub of Jefferson’s 5,000-acre agricultural enterprise and a center of work and domestic life for dozens of people -- free whites, free blacks, servants, and enslaved people. The exhibition features thirteen site-based panels with interpretive text, images of historical text, and recreations of artifacts excavated by Monticello's archaeologists.  The exhibition can be experienced alone or in conjunction with on our Slavery at Monticello Tours or our new Slavery at Monticello: Work and Life on Mulberry Row app.
