PLAINS, GA (WALB) - One of America's former first lady's childhood home is now a historic landmark in Plains.

Rosalynn Smith Carter helped to unveil the historic marker on Saturday.

Dozens of locals and family members turned out for the ceremony at 219 South Bond Street.

Mrs. Carter's niece who now lives in the home says the marker will give those who tour the Former first lady's town, information she's been telling them for years.

"I feel really proud, I'm excited, I think the sign will give a lot of people knowledge about the house that they may not know going through on a bus tour," said LeAnne Feltman, Rosalynn's niece.

The Plains historic Trust and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site were instrumental in getting the marker erected.

Rosalynn Carter was born in Plains in 1927.
