It’s on Canadian soil but it’s such a part of the Roosevelt’s life it’s very American. You learn about the Roosevelt’s and see where they summered as kids. Really nice but modest houses. Great views. Friendly tours. Donations only for entry fee. Really interesting and...More

We found it interesting that a lot of our friends and family had no idea what the significance of Campobello was. They'd never heard of it. Being in the senior generation, I remember stories of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and of Campobello, where they spent...More

Very well presented history of the Roosevelt family and the President. Such an amazing story. I wonder if a person with such serious mobility challenges would ever be elected President again in this Era? Pastoral, pleasant, and to quality displays and presentations. Makes history come...More
