Description

Do you have a history loving hound? Then a visit to Booker T. Washington National Monument is a must. This 207 acre park pays homage to its namesake, Booker T. Washington, an influential leader in the African American community during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Your pup will love learning about him while checking out the beautiful rural scenery.

The pawperty remains true to its original roots as a tobacco farm. Enjoy a mellow stroll around the premises so your pupster can get a feel for how life was years ago.  Your doggo won’t be the only creature around these parts. The farm is home to sheep, pigs, chickens, and horses. It also has a lovely garden area to check out. Two legged and four legged visitors can learn about the plants and garden techniques that were used around 1850.

Your pup will love trotting along the park’s trails. The Plantation Trail is just a fourth of a mile. As your pal walks along the trail, they will see reconstructions of 19th century farm buildings like the ones that were around when Washington was a young boy. Unfurtunately, dogs are not allowed in the buildings, so leave your pal with another member of your pawrty if you want to go in them. The Jack O' Lantern Trail is 1.5 miles and travels through fields and forests. Your pal will have a blast putting their nose to the ground and picking up all the scents.

Booker T. Washington National Monument is a woofderful place to have a picnic. Pack a sandwich (and some biscuits for your pooch) and eat your lunch in pawsome wooded setting. The picnic area has a water fountain and trash cans. Restrooms are located in the Visitors Center. Don’t forget to also bring some clean up bags so you can pick up after your pooch.

No bones about it, your pup will love this place!
