Tin Shop on Slave Row at Monticello

At Thomas Jefferson’s house “Monticello” near Charlottesville, Virginia there is a nearby row of smaller log cabins. These are amazingly cute with stone bases, log walls and a chimney. Inside there is a nice tin shop that is all recreated to be as it was back in the late 1700’s when Jefferson was there. Notice the clapboards are hand cut and short and the logs are hand adzed square.

  1. I just love that recreation of old times gone by. I remember when we used to visit Upper Canada Village near Thousand Isles in Ontario, Canada, where a whole village was recreated from the early Canadian settlers. Thank you for bringing back that nostalgic childhood memory for me…
