WARM SPRINGS, Ga. – In other interesting news, the Former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt has a home in Georgia and its still standing. Now, Roosevelt’s Little White House is a historic site and it attracts visitors from all over the United States.

Roosevelt built the house while he was governor of New York, as a getaway of sorts. He first came to Warm Springs ten years previously looking for a cure for polio and found relief in the 88-degree spring waters of Warm Springs. Some say, the New Deal was developed based on his experiences in the town.

According to Georgia State Parks, “Visitors can tour FDR’s home, which has been carefully preserved very much as he left it, the servants and guest quarters, and the nearby pools complex that first brought the future president to Warm Springs.”

The site is open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. and it’s closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.

Upcoming events: Roosevelt’s Little White House Historic site will host a “Swim the Warm Springs-Dip into the Past” event on May 28. Visitors will be able to swim in the historic pools build by President F.D.R as a place for therapy.

The site is located at 401 Little White House Road in Warm Springs.
