  • This is a very interesting spot and you'll learn some history about President McKinley and TR who was inaugurated there after President. McKinley's death.

  • The site goes well beyond just being the place where TR became president; it puts the era of Gilded Age industrialization, robber barons, immigration, and the rise of Buffalo to national prominence...

  • A very interesting tour. The presentation describes not only the inauguration but also gives you plenty of historical context. Our guide did an excellent job of leading us through the house and explaining the situation that Roosevelt found himself in. The videos and supporting presentations were great as well. Recommended!
  • This was a great stop while in Buffalo. Extremely knowledgeable staff and perfectly curated home will impress any history buff! Step inside and time travel back to 1901. I would plan to spend about 2 hours here if you do the guided tour. Highly recommend!!
