We love it when we find a National Monument a little out of the way. Despite the rural setting, this was an up to date and educational stop. His is an inspirational story which should be studied by those who complain about America today.

If you love history you will love this park. It is the life and times of one of the most interesting men our American History. We have been here three times. There is an indoor museum and a walking trail.

We attended a workshop called Coffee with the Carver's. They explained about the all the Archaeological Investigations that had been done to locate the original homestead. They offer all kinds of activities for families and it is a excellent educational opportunity

Born to slaves, GW Carver did not let them hinder his aspirations in life. His masters were kind to him and allowed him some privileges that probably would not have been granted to other slaves, if not for his frail health. His interests in nature...More
