Tour & Artifact Showcase @ Franklin, Eleanor, & Sara Roosevelt Townhouse
Step inside the house that Franklin, Eleanor, and Sara Roosevelt once called home, with special access to archival pieces rarely seen by the public.
Led by the historian and curator of the Roosevelt House, our trip inside the Neo-Georgian landmark will include:
- The history and story behind the house that Sara Roosevelt built for Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt (and why Sara decided to live next door)
- A private walkthrough of the townhouse where some of the most iconic public policies of the 20th century were shaped
- Stories around Franklin’s rise to the presidency after his struggle with polio, Eleanor’s activism for civil and human rights, and Sara’s philanthropy
- An exclusive opportunity at the end of the tour to see authentic items from the Roosevelt House archive
