Plan Your Visit

Not every town in this country can be recognized as the home town of a United States President and a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; however, Plains, Georgia can. Plains has an interesting history and is proud of its past as well as its present achievements.






Whether you are a Carter enthusiast, a researcher, or just curious how a small town influenced a young boy who would become the president of the most powerful nation in the world, odds are you will find a visit to the Jimmy Carter National Historical Park interesting. The history and culture of this rural community can provide a look into why the Carters' ties to Plains, Georgia, have endured the stresses of public life, yet remain as strong as they were decades ago.
