Description:
The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, located in Plains, Georgia, preserves sites associated with James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr. (1924 - present), 39th President of the United States. These include his residence, boyhood farm, school, and the town railroad depot, which served as his campaign headquarters during the 1976 election. The building which used to be Plains High School (opened in 1921 and closed in 1979) serves as the park’s museum and visitor center. As President Carter lives in Plains, the area surrounding the residence is under the protection of the United States Secret Service and is not open to the public.

The Carters returned to Plains in January 1981. The former President and First Lady Rosalynn Carter pursue many of the goals of his administration through the Carter Center in Atlanta, which has programs to alleviate human suffering and to promote human rights and world peace. When they are in Plains, Carter teaches Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church, which is open to the public. The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site will also be the future grave site for President and Mrs. Carter.<gallery>Image:Jcnhsvistctr.jpg|Jimmy Carter National Historic Site Visitor Center (formerly Plains High School)Image:Jica-train-depot.jpg|Plains train depot, which served as the 1976 Carter campaign headquarters</gallery>
