Before he shaped domestic and world politics, Franklin D. Roosevelt built Little White House, a six-room Colonial Revival structure made of native Georgia pine. Roosevelt's private retreat for many years, as well as the site of his death, the house remains just as it was the day that he died. Part of a historic district, the house offers guided tours and displays Roosevelt's famous unfinished portrait (for which he was posing when he suffered a fatal stroke on April 12, 1945). You can view customized equipment Roosevelt used here, including his 1938 Ford convertible, which the handicapped president drove using specialized hand controls. By using our Warm Springs travel route planning tool, you can arrange your visit to Little White House and other attractions in Warm Springs.

  • Need to return when I have more time to read and look at all exhibits. Stopped last minute on my way back home. Very nice place. Loved the old cars and stage coach. I enjoy seeing the difference in how they lived back then compared to today. Simple but comfortable. It's amazing how much has changed. Can't wait to go back and really see everything.
  • Wonderful look into FDR's cottage retreat and the location of his final days. Huge number of actual artifacts from his life. Saw an exceptionally well done film on his life narrated by Walter Cronkite. Staff friendly and helpful. Thanks!
