This monument celebrates the birthplace of Booker T Washington. I grew up in this area so we often visited for field trips or family outings. There is a visitor's center with memorabilia and a video of Washington's life. After this you can tour the grounds that include old barns, stables, workshops, etc. It is actually a working farm so there are animals and crops around as well. On weekends and with groups they offer guided tours. They also have special days with candle making, nail making, and other activities. I think people by pass this area on their road trips through Virginia, but it's worth a pit stop to understand a vital piece of our history.
