  • Several years ago I received a very nice Christmas card from President Carter. I have no idea how he knows who I am or how he got my home address. I have never met him or tried to contact him ever. But it was a nice gesture. I would consider meeting him if he wanted to meet me. I would also accept a signed book.
  • Beautiful facility. I like that it's by the Belt Line trail.
  • Nifty little museum, made me respect this president a lot more. He'll also sign any of his books and mail it back to you if you leave it and fill out a form. Beautiful walking grounds around the museum.
  • Had a great experience here. Go here to learn some neat things and meet some great folks.
  • While I'm quite fond of President Carter and everything he stands for, including his unapologetic Christian attitude, I'm quite certain he would be disappointed to learn that some of the people he has entrusted to staff and run his wonderfully conceived organization are "nothing" like him.... when people present themselves there to be considered for employment and desiring to be apart of his ( Carter's) vision , they are met with indifference and hostility. Not at all representative of the man and woman who founded the center. Quite sad and ironic.
