#15 of 120 in Museums in Georgia
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.

  • A very well put together little museum. It was informative and interesting. It is a Georgia State Park and the Park Rangers were helpful and well informed. I very much enjoyed my visit.
  • Great historical site to visit. Really enjoyed the informative staff and the entire museum and house. Worth it to me!
  • What an incredible experience. Worth the drive. Loved it.
  • 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.
  • Great history for our stay in the area. Beautiful landscape and friendly staff.
