ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Plains residents and tourists got to see where former President Jimmy Carter grow up.

Its all part of a candle light tour of his childhood home. Jimmy Carter himself even made an appearance on Saturday.

People came from as far away as North Carolina and Florida for the tour. Guides read excepts from his book along the tour.

"Well it's just a way to learn our history. What we have done in our past, and maybe learn a little from our past, as people come out and learn about what it was like," says Steve Theus with the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.

Kids at one station made ornaments, which is what Jimmy Carter and his sister did when they were young.
