As President Carter lives in Plains, the area surrounding the residence is under the protection of the United States Secret Service and is not open to the public. Few U.S. Presidents have had such close ties with where they were born and raised. The rural southern culture of Plains, Georgia, that revolves around farming, church and school, had a large influence in molding the character and in shaping the political policies of the 39th President of the United States.
