The Little White House served as Franklin D. Roosevelt’s personal retreat, where he hoped to find a cure for polio. The warm springs, after which the town is named, did provide some improvement to his condition. However ultimately, Little White House was also the site of Roosevelt’s death. On April 12, 1945, the former president suffered a stroke while sitting for a portrait.
