Plains, GA, home of Jimmy Carter

It was a beautiful day to be outdoors, walking around on the farm where President Jimmy Carter and his brother and sisters grew up. The farm is now a National Historic Site.
Enter through the back porch...
I loved the stove in the kitchen, having cooked on one like it.
Jimmy Carter's bedroom
The living room, with radio and piano, where the family gathered.

The blacksmith shop

  1. Point of Interest - Jimmy Carter grew up without electricity. He was in high school before rural electricity became available to his family's farm. He is the last president to have grown up without electricity in his childhood.
