Little White House

Last Thursday, we drove over to Warm Springs, GA and visited FDR's home. He started visiting Georgia in the early 1920s after he was stricken with polio. This is BEFORE he was President. He purchased the *resort* and turned it into a medical facility, as swimming (physical therapy) was being acknowledged as a bone fide treatment for polio victims.

This historic home is part of the State Park organization ,and therefore, enjoyed *free* entry with my annual park pass. There is a new (2003) welcome center complete with museum, introductory film, and gift shop, where I noticed a George Grant book, The Patriot's Handbook!

This visit dove-tailed historically with my May visit to Harry Truman's home in Independence, MO.
