Very pretty place and extremely Intinteresting. I learned so much about the early president. Lovely grounds. Absolutly worth the vistit. Highlights include seeing the incomplete portrait that was being painted when he died, the car designed especially for him so he could drive, and the walking sticks sent from all around the world.

President Franklin Roosevelt was attracted to the warm springs of Georgia because of their reputed healing power. He was struck by polio when he was a young man in his thirties and it confined him to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Roosevelt ended up building a residence there because of his frequent visits and it became known as the Little White House. All of his cars were equipped with hand controls since he did not have the use of his legs and you can see two of them when you visit. Roosevelt was elected President during the Great Depression and initiated many programs to get the Nation moving again. Social Security, established in 1935, was perhaps his greatest contribution and continues to offer safety nets today for the aged and the disabled. He was extremely popular and served longer than any other President in our history. He died in Warm Springs near the beginning of his 4th term in office. He was sitting for a portrait at the time of his death and this painting is on display as the "Unfinished Portrait". For anyone interested in our Nation's history, this is a worthwhile attraction. The admission cost is modest and also includes a visit to the actual warm springs nearby.

I have lived near the little white house for many years, but just never made the tour. I decided on a last minute outing to make a stop by with my daughter. Very glad we did. It is such a neat place of history regarding President Rosevelt and his life.

As a former social studies teacher I just love to stumble upon these types of attractions. Little did I know that the park offered a great first-hand glimse at life at the Little White House. Everything has been saved as it was back FDR passed away. Even our young children enjoyed the trip back in time. Definitely don't miss this opportunity!

The Little White House was a wonderful place to visit. It was very interesting and informative. It was a short drive from Callaway Gardens and was probably our favorite sight-seeing adventure. We learned a lot and enjoyed the journey back in time.
