We enjoyed visiting this well-thought-out, self-guided tour of Carter's boyhood home. From the chickens in the pin to the horses and cats, there are many stories that continue to live on here.

All the Jimmy Carter national Park locations were great. The farm itself had animals and was not too big. You can walk around and see his childhood home. The park staff that was Manning at the time was very helpful and went out of her way to provide us with information.
Apart from the connection to Jimmy Carter, this was an excellent look at life in the 1930s. Interesting signage discusses many aspects of life for the Carter household, providing an excellent example of life at that time. Obtaining electricity and access to water in the house, caring for farm animals, keeping a fire burning, and working to be largely self-sufficient are a few of the many topics covered. Multiple buildings are on site, including the house, a blacksmith shop, a store, a barn, and an outhouse. There are also live animals: chickens, goats, and mules. Extremely family friendly, free attraction. An NPS worker was at the site to answer questions and interact with guests. This place is well worth a visit. Sidewalks between the buildings make it stroller (and presumably wheelchair) friendly. Clean bathrooms on site.
