Slave Dwellings | Thomas Jefferson's Monticello - Five log dwellings for slaves were located on Mulberry Row in 1796. The Mulberry Row cabins were occupied mainly by household servants -- women who did the cooking, washing, house cleaning, sewing, and child tending. The log cabins range in size from 12'x14' to 12'x20 1/2', with earth floors and wooden chimneys. Jefferson provided little in the way of furnishings -- a few cooking implements and bedding.
