PLEASE NOTE: Julie is experiencing some minor health problems, which we will explain in our next podcast, which will reduce our frequency in the next several months. Tune in next week to find out all the details! We had problems with our audio files this week, so a few weeks after our visit, we talk a little about our impressions of the Pope-Leighey House, and the Usonian houses of Frank Lloyd Wright. (1:06). Which comes to us via the Podsafe Music Network. Our walking music is from Find Me.
We continue on to Mulberry Row, where slaves lived and a number of the plantation's main functions occurred, like the joinery and blacksmith shops, and the smokehouse and dairy. We discover and solve the mystery of the wires going up the trees. We also visit the Levy grave site and talk about the Levy's role in preserving Monticello. (6:32). After Mulberry Row we head up to the house, and the rooms under it, including the cidery, beer cellar, and the wine cellar. (16:56). Our walking music is from Find Me.
