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.

  • We picked the perfect time to visit this place - we went in the fall. The trees and leaves and hillsides were gorgeously colorful. The museum itself was quiet and peaceful at that time of year. The artifacts in the museum were impressive and thoughtful. However, it was the little White House where Roosevelt lived and later died that left a deep impression. It had a certain reverence about it. No matter your political leanings, respect and admiration for Roosevelt is felt as you walk through the home and consider the historical events that took place there.
  • Very interesting, they have the Guest Quarters, Servant Quarters, Secret Service booth, and U.S. Marine booth still standing. There are the 51 stones, placed there in honor of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. After you go inside, you can even leave the grounds and go to the treatment pool for people with Polio. The water is drained, although there is a small fountain that you can feel the 88° water.
