It was a very hot day when I visited the farm. Suggest having several bottles of water with you. The farm is nice. You can tour at your own pace. It is a bit spread out so plan accordingly. It's an enjoyable outing. Do see it.

We go to Florida every few years. Each year going down I 75 we see signs for Plains, GA. We always say we should stop but never do. Well this is the year we did. We visited the old High School which is now a muesum and the old rail station converted into his campaign headquarters. But the best stop was by far the old carter farm house.There is someone there to answer questions and help with your tour. We did it on our own and the recorded descriptions and memories of President Carter add a lot to the tour. Little Plains was well worth a few hours stop.

This serene, peaceful property was my favorite place to visit. It's a Sears catalog house. No electricy or running water in the early days, then they added a windmill and a bathroom. Lovely restoration job makes you want to move out there--well, maybe adding a window AC unit! Barn, outbuildings, garden, lovely to walk around. Wear sneakers not flip-flops or sandals--those darn fire ants are EVERYWHERE in this part of GA and make walking off the paths treacherous.

Well kept, grounds were well tended and staff were very informative. Interesting piece of history. I loved the commisary and the idea behind it.
