  • Ths place is quite peaceful! I imagined Mr. Carver traversing the countryside as a young boy , thinking that I walked in the same place as this great man. It was an honor to be here today. The park has been well kept and the history well preserved. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and patient with our group. This is definitely worth the stopping and visiting.
  • We took 4 toddlers and two babies. The kids loved getting to be outside and explore. We taught them as we went along. It was also nice that it was stroller and wheelchair accessible since one of our 4 yr olds is in wheelchair. And strolling the babes was nice too!
  • This is a very fun interaction national monument to come to. Really enjoy the walking trail and all the different things you get to do while there. A good place for anyone to visit.
  • This place is great. It is neat for family, friends, and Science, Social Studies, and History teacher/classes (educational field trips). This is a really scientific, historical, faith, and social studies experience. This is a must see! 👀 It has an interactive area for kids and family. Also it has a trail and monuments. Sadly, it was very rainy the day we went and we were not able to do the entire trail. I will go to the area again if I ever go again and do the trail.
  • This was a really good experience. I came out with more knowledge than I could have imagined. I was educated with just one visit.
