Plan Your Visit
Be sure to plan at least one hour for an easy hike. The one-mile, self-guiding loop leads you into woodlands, across streams, and along a tallgrass prairie restoration area. You can see the Boy Carver statue, the 1881 Moses Carver house, and visit the Carver Family Cemetery. (George Washington Carver is buried at Tuskegee University in Alabama.) One can clearly capture the same enthusiasm young George showed for all of nature.
Did You Know?
Racial segregation, and sometimes violence, forced George Washington Carver to move from place to place to gain an education. He later sketched the first school (on the right, in drawing) he was allowed to attend in Neosho, Missouri.
