Last week President Donald Trump signed H.R.5472, the Jimmy Carter National Historical Park Redesignation Act, which will permanently upgrade the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in his hometown of Plains, Ga., into a national historic park. The legislation, introduced by introduced by Rep. Sanford Bishop and outgoing Georgia Sen. David Perdue, will allow the sites to be preserved and restored by the National Park System. The sites include the farm on which Carter grew up, his high school, his presidential campaign headquarters, and the longtime home he shares with wife Rosalynn. They provide an educational opportunity for students and tourists alike to learn about Georgia’s first and only president from his childhood to his political career and beyond.
