General Information

FDR's "Little White House".
Description - Franklin Delano Roosevelt built the Little White House in 1932 while governor of New York, prior to being inaugurated as president in 1933. He first came to Warm Springs in 1924 hoping to find a cure for the infantile paralysis (polio) which had struck him in 1921. Swimming in the warm, buoyant spring waters brought him no miracle cure, but it did bring improvement. On April 12, 1945, during his 41st visit to the rural community of 500, he suffered a massive stroke and died while his portrait was being painted.

Today, the "Unfinished Portrait" is a focal point of the Little White House tour. The house and furnishings have been carefully preserved very much as Roosevelt left them in 1945. The adjacent museum displays memorabilia collected in honor of the statesman and presents a brief film containing historic footage of Roosevelt and his contemporaries. Visitors also can see the guest house, servants' quarters and garage where Roosevelt's 1938 Ford roadster is displayed.

Recreation - Little White House State Historic Site offers a view of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's house in Georgia. Touring the house is the main activity at this site. There are not any outdoor activities offered at this historic site.

Climate - Georgia generally experiences mild, comfortable winters and warm to hot, humid summers. The area can offer a relatively warm escape for snow-free outdoor recreation during the winter months. Be prepared for occasional cold weather during the winter, especially at the higher elevations in northern Georgia.

Location - Little White House State Historic Site is located in the Plains Region of western Georgia. The Site is found 1/4 mile south of Warm Springs on Georgia Hwy. 27 Alt.
