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.

The rural setting of the monument offers scenic views of prairies, woodlands, and rolling hills. A variety of oak, maple, and locust trees span the front lawn.
