Spanning across 240 acres (97.12 hectares), the George Washington Carver National Monument was established in 1943. It is the first of its kind in homage to an African-American, non president personality. It is the birthplace and boyhood home of George Washington Carver, a legendary educator, humanitarian and agriculturist. Comprising of a museum, visitor center, a discovery center, nature trail, the Carver Cemetery and the 1881 Historic Moses Carver house, it is a veritable scenic spot with surrounding woodlands, rolling hills and prairies.
