Warm town...Warm people...™
Roosevelt was so enchanted with Warm Springs that he built the only home he ever owned here - a modest, six room cottage called the Little White House which served as a relaxing, comfortable haven for him during his regular visits to Warm Springs. It was here he is believed to have developed his New Deal policies that would affect the entire nation, here where he relaxed and socialized and here where he died on April 12, 1945 while posing for the "Unfinished Portrait".
We invite you to visit the Little White House and glimpse into the life of our late president. The house is as it was the day he died. See the Memorial Fountain, the Walk of the States, the Museum, a film in the auditorium, two of Roosevelt's classic cars and the original bump gate that opened with an automobile bumper. Open daily from 9:00 am til 4:45 pm except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Located 1/4 mile south of the town of Warm Springs. Admission fee charged. For more information, call 706-655-5870.
Smithsonian at Warm Springs
Whatever Happened to Polio?FDR found hope in Warm Springs, and he wanted to share that hope with everyone recovering from polio. His concern for people with disabilities spread nationally and internationally until today when the world might soon celebrate the eradication of polio from every country on earth. “Whatever Happened to Polio,” an exhibition created by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, presents the history of the disease from ancient times, through the epidemics of the early 20th century, through the creation of the Salk and Sabin vaccines to the current efforts to eliminate polio from the last few countries where it still survives.
The Smithsonian created the exhibition to mark the 50th anniversary of the Salk vaccine, and it originally opened in Washington, D.C. in 2005. The public can now view this exhibition on the historic campus of Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The exhibition will be on display at Warm Springs through July 2009! If you would like more information about the exhibition, please contact Roosevelt Warm Springs Tour Coordinator - Linda Creekbaum at 706-655-5010.
