This former high school of the the Carters had been converted to a homage to the Carter legacy. Walk through a timeline from school to present. See artwork by Mr. Carter and pick of a book of gift at the gift shop. Admission is free.

Loved seeing the schoolhouse and timeline of the Carter's life and career. So cool to see how small this community is and how a president emerged fr this community. Even more interesting that they live there full time now.
