4.7/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Very nice facility, however not much if anything for a 5 year old. The grounds are lovely, but if you have small kids I suggest FDR state park. 
  • Loved it. You should plan to spend at least a few hours here. A self-guided tour, but there is knowledgeable staff around the museum and house. Also, very reasonable prices in the gift shop.
  • Very interesting, informative, historical site. Lots of items from FDR's past in the museum, with an interesting short video about the location. Highly recommended!
  • Very interesting historical information here. I also highly recommend visiting the historic warm spring pool. It's free admission with your receipt from the house tour.
  • The Little white house is great experience to family and friends to expirence our 32 president and has a great education video. However they need to except United Bank cards.
  • This was my second trip to visit, they moved FDR's cars out into the museum area which was great. They have a short movie to watch before the walk around all the artifacts and housing units. I will be back again there is a lot to learn. I left feeling how much I would have missed him if I lived in that era.
