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) that had struck him in 1921. Swimming in the 88-degree, buoyant spring waters brought him no miracle cure, but it did bring improvement. During FDR's presidency and the Great Depression, he developed many New Deal Programs (such as the Rural Electrification Administration) based upon his experiences in this small town.

While posing for a portrait on April 12, 1945, FDR suffered a stroke and died a short while later. Today, the "Unfinished Portrait" is featured in a museum that showcases many exhibits, including FDR's 1938 Ford convertible with hand controls, his Fireside Chats playing over a 1930s radio, his stagecoach and a theater. 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.

Hours: 9AM-4:45PM daily. Last film begins at 4PM. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

July 23 Very exciting for the kids by Ga Parks Fan
Excellent place but too expensive. No Active Duty discounts for our servicemen and women. Great staff, family fiendly. Not very accessible, heavy glass doors, odd restroom doors. Nice gift shop. Pools were not filled but they had an additional gift shop in case you missed the first one. Great food in town.
