WASHINGTON (WRDW/WAGT) - A bill to make the Jimmy Carter Historic Site in Plains, Ga., into a national park is on the way to President Donald Trump’s desk.

If signed, it will protect several different spots like the Carter boyhood farm, Plains High School, the train depot that served as his campaign headquarters and eventually the Carters’ home and gravesites.

Carter says no matter where life has taken him, Plains has always been his home, and he’d be thankful for his family’s legacy to be preserved.
