Authorized by Congress in 1943, George Washington Carver National Monument preserves the birthplace and legacy of the famed African American scientist, educator and humanitarian. George Washington Carver reputedly discovered three hundred uses for peanuts and hundreds more for soybeans, pecans and sweet potatoes.

This was the first national monument dedicated to a black American and the first to honor someone other than a president.

Park facilities include a visitor center and museum, gift shop, walking trail and picnic area. On the property, you can visit the 1881 Moses Carver house and the Carver Cemetery (George Washington Carver is buried at Tuskegee University in Alabama).

Daily tours and special events are offered year round. The park is closed January 1, Thanksgiving Day and December 25.
