The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site and Preservation District was established by Congress in 1987.The legislation directs that the park be administered to
- interpret President Jimmy Carter's life and presidency in relation to Plains, Georgia
- preserve the resources associated with that story
- present the history of Plains as a small rural southwestern Georgia town
- interpret the influence of the rural South on Jimmy Carter during his formative years.
The National Park Service complements the fine work already accomplished by the citizens of Plains who initiated the efforts to preserve Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter's hometown.
