After Mr. Jefferson had cleared his "Little Mountain," he tucked his utility rooms (below) in the side of the hill beneath a terrace. Thus from the mansion he could not see the servants' rooms, kitchen, and smokehouse; yet they were easily accessible by hidden passageways. A similar deck on the other side covers stables and icehouse. To the tiny one-room cottage (background), first structure at Monticello, Jefferson brought his bride, Martha Wayles Skelton, on a snowy night in 1772.
