The mission of the G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum is to promote the remarkable contributions African-Americans have made historically. Our objective includes: providing a dynamic educational experience for students, specifically in the area of Science for which Dr. George Washington Carver made a significant impact; maintaining and encouraging historical excellence; serving as a reservoir for cultural heritage; and assuring accurate portrayals of African-American history and events. Our aim is to be a flagship location that provides heritage visibility in both the Wiregrass and surrounding areas.
The G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum is a tribute to the creative legacy of Dr. George Washington Carver and to his historic impact on the economic prosperity of the South, particularly in the Wiregrass Area. The multi-faceted creativity of Dr. Carver is dramatized with dual murals depicting his scientific and economic contributions as well as his artistic skills.
The G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum was founded in 2000 by Dr. Francina Williams. Since its inception, the museum has provided a rich source of African-American History for the Wiregrass Area. Our tours, which are open to the public at no cost, continue to be a success. Additionally, as a part of our efforts to provide a contemporary and progressive educational format, we have instituted a weekly, instructor-led, hands-on science experience for students Pre-K to 12th Grade, as well as Home School Groups.
