    So beautiful! I’m glad that the Thomas Jefferson Foundation was able to purchase and restore the place.The house is today a Museum and an educational institution besides being the only private home in the United States that has been designated a World Heritage Site!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Madison, I think that last picture shows part of Mulberry Row, but aren’t the quarters themselves gone? I remember doing a project on the roundabouts in grad school and the archeologists had just found Sally Hemings’ family home site in the woods.
