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?
George Washington Carver was born into slavery during the Civil War. While still enslaved, outlaws stole George and his mother Mary from Moses Carver. A Union scout found George and returned him to the Carvers.
