Archaeologists working at Jimmy Carter's boyhood home in Plains, Ga., have found a pre-World War II relic - a red clay tennis court.
The National Park Service archaeologists found the court, which hasn't been played on for more than 50 years, while working to restore the homestead as part of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. It was under several inches of grass, soil and gravel.The tennis court stands just a few yards away from the house where Carter lived from age 12 until he left for the Navy at 18.
The Park Service intends to transform the property into a working farm where people can learn about the nation's 39th president and children can dig for artifacts.
