Not much to actually see, but it does make for a fun photo :) If you're in Plains, you gotta swing by and say hi to the big smiling nut!

How can you NOT stand by a LARGE peanut and NOT smile:) Pull out of The Plain School history location, turn right and look for it about a 1/2 mile down the road. Sits by the road:)

What the heck! it's old, peeling, but you gotta have your picture taken in front of this iconic 1976 Carter campaign mascot.

This was a campaign prop for Jimmy Carter - it is the type of attraction I always pull off and see. It's a cutie!

We drove up to the peanut and took it's picture. That's about all there is to it, but it was fun to see. It's just up the road from the school, so it's easy to get to and then get back to town.

This cute statue greets you as you drive from the Visitor's Center out to the Maranatha Baptist Church.

Worth seeing when you visit town. Stop and get a picture or selfie. When you see the smile you know who comes to mind.
