To visit former President Jimmy Carter's hometown is a privilege. There is a lot to see and do in this town. We were able to see Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School at Maranatha Baptist Church.

It's half a mile from town. It's worth the smile. Drive out to it and make a picture. You'll be glad you did.

Cool statue for taking photos. Looks like part of the teeth need dental work :) You will pass this on the way to the Marantha Baptist Church where Jimmy Carter still teaches Sunday School.

This was a fun photo opportunity stop. The kids thought it was hilarious, and it's near Maranatha Baptist Church, right on the side of the road. Definitely stop and take a picture. How often do you see something like this?!

This smiling peanut was used during a Jimmy Carter Presidential Rally in Evansville, Indiana. It was brought to Plains, GA in '76. Nothing to read, or do with it except take a photo and go into the gas station to have your Passport book stamped!...More

Well~ what can you say about the "Peanut" of Plains.... we certainly got a BIG laugh when we stumbled across it. Not sure what I expected, but this certainly wasn't it. If your in the area, it's a must see. Warning ~ don't expect much...More

President Carter apparently hates this thing (it's not very flattering, is it?), but the peanut selfie is a must when you're leaving Maranatha Baptist Church or just visiting Plains. Be careful - there's a fire ant hill right next to it.
