Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend at Warm Springs

May 17, 2012
Roosevelt bathing in Warm Springs

For 2 decades, Franklin Delano Roosevelt called Warm Springs home. In 1921, he contracted a paralytic illness which required him to use iron braces and a wheelchair. Just a few years later, determined to recover, the future New York governor and U.S. president sought relief in Warm Springs’ therapeutic natural waters.

Today, Roosevelt’s pools, maintained for historic preservation, are open to the general public only during special occasions. In remembrance of Roosevelt, you and your family can spend this Memorial Day weekend bathing in naturally warm waters, enjoying the shallow pools Roosevelt once did.
