George Washington Carver National Monument is a unit of the National Park Service located about two miles west of Diamond, Missouri; the national monument was founded on July 14, 1943 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt who dedicated $30,000. It was the first national monument dedicated to an African-American and first to a non-President.
