History Museum Historic Site
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.

  • Amazing part of our countries history. See where President FDR and the first lady lived in Georgia. Like going to the White House in DC and seeing the oval office, but better.  more »

  • Great historical site to visit. Really enjoyed the informative staff and the entire museum and house. Worth it to me!
  • This is a very nice museum and I enjoyed the informative history lesson on FDR. I will go again when I have the time to go through the museum more thoroughly. We enjoyed the walk of Flags & Stones. The gift shop offered some interesting items and the staff was nice. We also enjoyed visiting the Historic Pool Museum and driving through the campus of the Rehab Center that FDR helped fund. We all enjoyed our visit to Warm Springs and going through The Little White House and the grounds.
  • Good display of the Roosevelt retreat as it was. Great deal of history available covering the thirties into the Truman Era. Good parking lot but it can be a challenge for handicapped folks due to the grade of some of the terrain. The gift shop is fun and filled with interesting things. The town of Warm Springs is full of gift shops and a couple of restaurants. At the end of a day of exploring the food was good.
  • This place is a must see. I can't wait to come back.
  • This place ruined my Social Study grades. By the way Anoop Jalla or Samad Shaikh have never been to this place and whatever information they are feeding you is wrong.
