See where former president Jimmy Carter grew up! Easy walking on paved trails. Walk thru the Carter Family home. Imagine how it was to live without electricity and running water! Imagine having to pump water every day for the farm animals and for the family! Free admission!

I enjoyed touring the farm and childhood home of Jimmy Carter. I sat on the front porch and enjoyed the swing.

Visit is free, and you can walk around at your leisure. There are plenty of plaques with information, a flyer of information, as well as buttons to push to hear information in Jimmy Carter's own words (my favorite). There are animal pens, an outhouse, family home, family store, pump house, blacksmith, barn, carriage barn, and more. Employees had the mules... More

There are real goats and chickens! Children will enjoy this! Seeing the house that President Carter grew up in was a great learning experience for my grandsons!

President Carter lived and worked on this farm from 1928 until 1941. You can go through the boyhood home, and we were surprised at the large, airy rooms in the home. At each stop along the way, you can hear him tell you about the house, farm area, animals and everything by pressing a button on a pole. It was... More

If you ever wondered where President Jimmy Carter got his down-to-earth roots, you can start by visiting his homestead. His house tells the story of how the sone of a peanut farmer, would learn responsibility and and develop the character it would take to become our 39th President. The house has been preserved to reflect the era in which he... More

Loved visiting here because I felt an overwhelming sense of peace here. The land has seen a lot of hardship and hard work but also harmony and love. Great seeing the house and grounds and how life was back in the 1930's. You can see where President Carter got his values.
