There are many things to see and do at George Washington Carver National Monument. Whether you have half an hour or half a day, visit us and experience the history and beauty of the park. The park is the birthplace and childhood home of the famed scientist, educator, and humanitarian. Established in 1943, it is the first unit of the National Park Service dedicated to an African American.
Carver Trail The one-mile, self-guiding loop lead you into the woodlands, across streams, and along a tallgrass prairie restoration area. You can see the birth site of George Washington Carver, the Boy Carver statue and the 1881 Moses Carver house, and graves of Moses and Susan Carver (George Washington Carver is buried at Tuskegee University in Alabama).
Guided Tours of the Carver trail are offered daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The ranger-led guided tour of the Carver Trail interprets the childhood and life of George Washington Carver. Allow one hour and 15 minutes for the guided tour. Tours begin at the visitor center.
