If you're touring Monticello, be sure to visit Mulberry Row and to take the Slavery at Monticello tour. Life at Monticello is quite interesting and the docents really know their Jefferson history so come with questions!

This is on the grounds of the Monticello and part of your admission price. Don't leave without hearing the guides give presentations, The history of this place is really remarkable. Well worth your time.
