{Sweet Sightings} BT Washington National Park

We are so honored and proud to be a part of the Booker T. Washington National Monument Grand Opening Event for their new addition to the Visitor Center. The Grand Opening Event is being held at 11am on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010. Our Fun Cupcakes will be present and abundant with a "Farm & Garden" theme that will be too cute to miss, as well as many Fancy Cupcakes in our Seasonal Fall Flavors.

Booker T. Washington National Monument commemorates the birthplace of America's most prominent African American educator and orator of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The property evokes an 1850s middle class tobacco farm, representative of Booker T. Washington's enslaved childhood at the Burroughs farm. He was born in 1856 to the Burroughses' cook, Jane and lived on the farm throughout the Civil War.

To learn more about Booker T. Washington, his life and accomplishments, visit the park! We are so fortunate to have a National Monument & Park located in our backyard!

Open seven days a week, year-round, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Click this link for directions to the park.
