This covered bridge is about 20 minutes north of Warm Springs; built around 1840
I think I look terrible in these two pictures, but I show them anyways (blah) cause the kids look so cute and we all look cool as a group in front of the bridge

We saw a movie called 'Warm Springs' on Prime a few months ago and it made us want to visit Warm Springs, GA, since it is about an hour and a half drive from Atlanta. It is a cute little town with a lot of history. The movie is highly recommended. This first picture is inside the Little White Cottage, in the guestroom. It was too dark inside to see anyone I guess.
Just love the old-style bedding.
The room where FDR was sitting, posing for the portrait. He was thought to have been sitting in the black chair behind that table.
You can't see too well, but Carson is standing next to one of FDR's wheelchairs. It was custom made to look like a normal dining room chair, instead of a cumbersome wheelchair.

A storage closet with all the original towels and linens
the Butler's pantry
This is looking from the front of the house out, and this is the servant's house
Next to that is the Guest House

Marine Corps station. There were lots of little stations like these for security guys to stand watch
The unfinished portrait that he was posing for when he collapsed and then died later of a cerebral hemorrhage

What the portrait would have looked like
In the gift shop, haha
This is a few minutes away from the Little White House; these therapy pools were restored in 2003. They were used for filming the movie 'Warm Springs'
They were restored once for the movie, with the real spring water and everything, but once the movie wrapped, they drained the pools and now it is a museum.
The warm spring water is still used in other therapy facilities just down the road.
A little water table where you can feel the temperature of the spring water as it flows
