Title: Photograph of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt sitting on the front steps of their house in Warm Springs, Meriwether County, Georgia, 1928
Date: 1928 Oct. 5
Description: A photograph of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt sitting on the front steps of their house in Warm Springs, Meriwether County, Georgia, 1928. Franklin Delano Roosevelt built this house, later known as McCarthy Cottage, in 1927; it served as his southern home until 1932, when the Little White House was completed. McCarthy Cottage burned to the ground in a fire in 2011.

The AP has date as Oct. 5, 1929 (may really be 1928 because the date conflicts with our records of FDRs visits. We show he was here Oct. 5, 1928, but not Oct. 5, 1929)
