President Donald Trump has signed the bill that will upgrade the status of locales in Plains tied to former President Jimmy Carter. What was formerly called the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is now the Jimmy Carter National Historical Park.
The park will include the farm where Carter grew up, the train depot that once was headquarters for his presidential campaign, his former high school and the city center. After Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, die, their home and burial sites will also be included in the park. They are ages 96 and 93, respectively.
