    Resting place of Moses and Susan Carver

    Many of the family of Moses and Susan Carver are buried in this cemetery in the meadow, a tallgrass prairie restoration area with abundant wildflowers.

    George Washington Carver is buried at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, where lived, taught, and carried on his research for decades.

    There is also a Carver Discovery Center featuring interactive exhibits about nature and science. We thought that would be geared mainly for children, so opted to spend more time elsewhere. Have heard it is nice, however, for youngsters.

    William's Pond
    1 more image

    Williams Pond, built in the 1930s, is named for Sarah Jane Williams, Moses Carver's niece, whose family lived on Carver's farm. It is in a pretty sylvan setting and is encircled by the quarter-mile Contemplative Loop Trail, a spur off the Carver Trail. There are a few benches along the route, and plaques with inspiriational quotations from George Washington Carver. Williams Branch flows from the spring-fed pond.

    The young boy known as the “Plant Doctor,” tended his secret garden while observing the day to day operations of a successful 19th century farm. Nature and nurture ultimately influenced George on his journey to becoming a renowned scientist of agriculture.
