President Carter greeting a visitor on a visit to the Boyhood Farm
Sometimes a visitor may get an unexpected surprise when they visit.


You never know who you may meet when you visit the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. Fields of peanuts, cotton, corn and other agricultural crops will welcome you to the serenity of the area. You may even see the 39th President of the United States and his wife taking a peaceful, relaxing and invigorating bike ride through the countryside.

We are pleased to share our photos, videos and sound bites with you, but to really experience this rural community, you have to be here. Explore the links and jumpstart a memory or two of visits to the grandparents, then plan a greater exploration to the small, rural community that raised a President.
