Home of Franklin D Roosevelt National Historic Site

Inky & Fala

Today was a cold day- but it turned out to be exciting! I got to go to Franklin Delano Roosevelt's home, which is a National Historic Site.  It was awesome. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was our nation's 32nd president. He served our country as president from March 4, 1933 to April 12, 1945. I got to go in his house and look at all his things.  You can't take pictures in the house, but here is a picture of me with a statue of his dog, Fala.  Did you know that Franklin Delano Roosevelt has also been to Ukraine? He has! He was in Yalta with Stalin and Churchill, working on ending the Great Patriotic War (that's what we call WWII in Russia.).  You know what's funny? I saw the cloak he wore that day in his closet. And then Mama told me that she's been to the palace where they held the Yalta Conference and played in the hallways when she was a girl. Whoa!

I had a lot of fun at FDR's home. The gift shop had dishes just like Kit's, some cool pencils, and Kit's books!

One of the cool things about this site is that you earn a Junior Secret Service badge instead of a Junior Ranger badge. I really enjoyed myself here. I especially liked learning about Fala.  Fala was very loyal!  To learn more about the Home of Franklin D Roosevelt National Historic Site, check out http://www.nps.gov/hofr.
