  • This is somewhere everyone should visit. I admire this man so much. He moved from being born into slavery to advising a president and more. I am in awe of his accomplishments, perseverance, determination and success. A true hero that should be honored!!
  • Always love to visit the monument. Enjoyed the singing ingredients today.
  • A local park full of history. If you haven't been, I highly suggest going, if for nothing other than to learn of Virginia's slave-holding past.
  • This is a piece of well preserved history!! I see the other reviews, they must not be of African American descent because they spoke as if it's simply a "nice walk, or scout expedition ". Well it's much more!! This is the actual site of the plantation Booker T. Washington was born and raised on for a number of years. They have an annual Juneteenth celebration, that our church family plans to attend this week, and it will be our second visit, because we were so impressed the first visit!! It's worth your time if you are looking for history and culture! You can find a "park" anywhere!!
  • If I could rate this place higher I would! This NP has a wonderful message, a great video to begin sharing the story, excellent often interactive displays and amazing well manicured grounds and an interpretative staff that is second to none. The grounds actually consist of live farm animals, active gardens and fields planted in crops of the day. All of this creates a real life setting that allows the visitor to step back in time and actually "feel" what it might have been like to be the slave Booker T Washington. Also, the very personable, very knowledgeable staff can answer any question one may have and best of all for me, share it with passion ...
