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.

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

A tip--in the summer that peanut is hot! Almost burned my hand leaning on it :) Good for a picture and a stop when you're in town. I did hear that Jimmy Carter wasn't a fan :)

As your driving down the street from the church it's right there. Just pull over, jump out and take your pictures with this big nut statue.

There is not a lot around the nut, but it is Worth a look. I think kids would love it. Try yo pick a colder day.

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.

We were just driving by and decided to stop in Plains, Ga. We went to the Business District which is small and quaint. They have a dress boutique and peanut store, that has the best peanut soft ice cream I have ever eaten. Plus lots...More
