Plains is home of the 39th President of the United States. In 1975, Jimmy Carter began his race for the presidency in downtown Plains with his campaign headquarters in an old depot. A block away is the high school where he graduated, and on the outskirts of town is the farm where he grew up. Today, all these places are open daily for visitors; and they can feel the excitement of the campaign, hear President Carter talk about life on the farm and sit in the classroom where he learned. Plains is a place of history, and one of its makers still lives down the street. We invite you to visit Plains, home of our 39th President and stay in our beautiful historic Inn. The Plains Historic Inn has seven rooms built by President Carter and others, decorated in the decades of his life. The rooms range from the 1920s through the 1980s and are beautifully decorated with furnishing from each of the periods. Call 229-824-4517 for availability.
