I had several relatives in Carthage and have visited here many times since shortly after it was opened. It has never failed to inspire me. Well worth a short detour off of the beaten path.

This is an interesting stop along the way. Stand in front of the statue and read about this American icon on Google. It helps to appreciate this intelligent, brave man even more.

Interesting place with many GWC quotes, small museum inside, nice walk through field area takes you to his childhood home and gives you facts a long the way. We enjoyed it. Dog friendly outside.

On my way to Carthage, I started seeing signs for the George Washington Carver National Monument. Since the day was already spoken for with 2+ hours of driving, I figured what's another hour-and-a-half if I get to visit a park and see a place that I hear about fairly often. It was a brisk day, but the sun was out, and actually not a bad day to walk a trail. The trails are well maintained, the grounds are beautiful, and the history lessons on display in addition to George Washington Carver's outlook on life provide a minor respite from our current political climate. I definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area. The museum on the grounds has quite a bit of information on display and while I spent more time on the trail than I did in the museum you can definitely tell that a lot of care goes into this place.
