Significance: Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter each completed eleven years of schooling here. Jimmy graduated at the top of his class of twenty-four students in 1941, and Rosalynn was the valedictorian of her class of sixteen in 1944. A vernacular example of formal Classical Revival styling, the building was erected in 1921 and was a focus of activity in the small rural town of Plains.
