(( A cold, drizzly day greeted Booker T Washington's 82 year old daughter as she cut the ribbon on the new visitor's center June 18, 1966.
Rain forced the rest of the ceremonies and the 250 guests inside Burnt Chimney elementary school.

The night before, the Ku Klux Klan rallied just a half mile from the site.

The groundwork for the monument was laid in 1940, when one of Washington's former students bought the educator's boyhood home near Burnt Chimney, operating it as a private memorial.
In 1957, Congress made the site a national monument.

Washington lived on the Burroughs family tobacco farm as a slave and was nine years old when freedom came in April, 1865.
He went on to found the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama and became an advisor to Presidents McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft.

The National Park Service rebuilt several of the farm buildings, including a slave cabin like the one where Washington was born.
