This is a very interesting place to visit. You tour at your own leisure the Carter home which is very simple.

My second visit here. Great history here. Good to see the beginnings of a president’s life. I love the National Park Service. Bug spray recommended.

Walking the grounds of the former president is cool! The best part is the audio where the President talks about life in the farm! Plains Georgia is only 700+ people so everyone new everyone! Humble beginnings!

The farm is well maintained. The home looks as if the family just stepped out for a moment. The grounds have easy walking.

This is a very interesting exhibit of life on the farm back in the 1920's & 30's. It was a simple life back then and the kids should enjoy seeing how people lived without electricity or all the other stuff we use now.
