Georgia National Historical Parks


Jimmy Carter National Historical Park

10/2/1997 Headed east to Plains and Jimmy Carter NHS. Passed the road JC lives on (no public access) and stopped at the (old and restored) Plains High School where JC graduated (Roslyn C also). Saw exhibits about Carter and drove to his nearby boyhood home. Went back to the center of town, by the depot where Carter ran his campaign, and bought fried peanuts, salted roasted peanuts and peanut brittle.

Ocmulgee National Historical Park

10/2/1997 ... on the way to Macon and Ocmulgee NM. Saw a film/exhibits about the Indians who lived here 1000 years ago, creating the burial mounds. Took a nice hike around some of the mounds (and on top of the Great Mound) and to the area where a trading post used to be.
