The Carters owned their own farm and employed black farmhands, though the only full-time employee was Jack Clark, a black man who worked as the farm supervisor. He and his wife, Rachel, lived in a small house on the property. Jimmy spent a lot of time here, even sleeping over when his parents were out of town. Most of his boyhood friends were black, which is why he was so much against segregation and always pro-Civil Rights.

The Jack Clark House has been restored and is open to the public. It now serves as a small museum to farm life and sharecropping.
