Our trip across Alabama moves to Tuskegee Alabama today where Booker T. Washington at the age of 26 founded the Tuskegee Institute in 1881 as a Normal School for Negroes, both boys and girls, and served as its first principal. The students made bricks in the Institute brickyard and built many of the first buildings on the campus. George Washington Carver joined the faculty in 1896 and proceeded to revolutionize agricultural development in the South in the early twentieth century. The legacy of these two men and their accomplishments are well known today and the site became a part of the National Park System in 1974 and is located on the campus of Tuskegee University. The 1913 multiview postcard below shows Rockefeller Hall, Thasher Hall, The Four Emerys, and The Chapel of Tuskegee Institute. This post card can be found in my Alabama listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! Have fun learning more about whatever interests you.
