Abstract

This point cloud from a terrestrial laser scanning survey at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site (Boyhood Home) is the Clark House. The Clarks were the nearest neighbor to the Carters. Jack Clark managed the barn, the mules and horses, and all the equipment for the farm. Jack's wife Rachel was said to be an amazing person and was legendary for her peanut harvesting work. President Carter fondly remembers that Rachel taught him wildflowers, trees, wildlife names, and much about nature, taking him fishing often. President Carter often stayed with them and was friends with the Clark children. His early experiences with the family likely shaped much of his worldview and understanding of Black life and families. Many African Americans resided at nearby Archery, and Earl Carter employed a number on the farm. The Clark home had to be moved slightly in the 1960s due to road work and is today open as an interpretive exhibit at the boyhood home of the 39th President of the United States.
