THE CARTER PRESIDENTIAL CENTER
is home to a group of nonprofit, nonpartisan programs dedicated
to promoting peace and human rights, resolving conflict, forstering
democracy and development, and fighting poverty, hunger, and disease
throughout the world. Four of the five interconnected pavilions house
offices for the former president and first lady and the Center's programs,
which are affiliated with Emory University. The Jimmy Carter Library,
located in the fifth pavilion, is operated by the National Archives.
On a hill overlooking Atlanta, the Center sits on 35 wooded acres just two miles from downtown. Five circular pavilions provide quiet views of gently rolling hills and a Japanes garden tucked between two small lakes.
Visitors may stroll through the rose and cut-flower gardens.
Inside, guests are treated to an eclectic array of art by American and international artists, mementos from the Carter White House, and specially designed furnishings. Flexible, innovative spaces make ideal settings for meetings or conferences, festive galas, elegant dinners, and intimate concerts in a historic setting.
