Holiday Open House at George Washington Carver National Monument

Carver National Monument Hosts Holiday Open House
DIAMOND, Missouri: The staff of George Washington Carver National Monument invites you to attend our Holiday Open House. This annual event will take place Saturday, December 8, 2012 inside the visitor center from 1:00 -3:00 p.m. Holiday Open House is free of charge and features holiday music, refreshments, and 19th century crafts. The Ozark Wilderness Dulcimer Club and Hawthorne: Old Tyme String Band will play traditional music of the season.

Park Rangers will present a special program called “Carver’s Christmas Letters”. George Washington Carver valued friendships and observed Christmas by giving and receiving letters of season’s greetings. Be sure to attend this reading of his letters. Several of Carver’s hand-painted Christmas cards will be on display along with remembrances of 19th century Ozark traditions and excerpts from Missouri Slave Narratives.

A special showing of the PBS feature Nature: Christmas in Yellowstone will run at noon and again at 3:00 p.m. Filmed in 2007, this 52-minute program features the splendor of winter in Yellowstone National Park. Stop by Holiday Open House for a few minutes or spend the entire afternoon and take away an ornament, a song, and season’s greetings from park staff!

Administered by the National Park Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior, George Washington Carver National Monument preserves the birthplace and childhood home of George Washington Carver, scientist, educator, and humanitarian. The monument is located two miles west of Diamond, Missouri on Highway V, then ¼ mile south on Carver Road. For more information, please call the park at 417-325-4151 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
