Special Features:Franklin Delano Roosevelt built the Little White House in 1932 while still governor of New York. He had first come to Warm Springs in 1924 hoping that the spring waters would provide a cure for the infantile paralysis (polio) that had struck him in 1921. During FDR's presidency and the Great Depression, he developed many New Deal Programs (such as the Rural Electrification Administration) based upon his experiences in this small town. On April 12, 1945, FDR suffered a stroke while his portrait was being painted and died a short while later. Today, the Unfinished Portrait is a focal point of the Little White House tour. The house and furnishings have been preserved much as Roosevelt left them in 1945.
