George Washington Carver National Monument

This historic site in Diamond, Missouri, was the boyhood home of scientist and educator George Washington Carver. There in the wilderness, Carver was exposed to some of his earliest scientific observations, which would later inspire his groundbreaking research into the cultivation of sweet potatoes, peanuts and soybeans. The site includes the “Carver Trail,” a one mile loop that passes woodlands, streams and grass prairies. (Photo: Courtesy of The National Parks Service)
