FDR First Visited Warm Springs

Seeking a cure for the paralysis left after an attack of polio in 1921, Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in Warm Springs, Georgia for his first visit to a place which he would come to regard as his “second home.” It was Roosevelt’s second visit overall to Georgia; the first had been before he contracted polio.
