Warm Springs Community Center
Warm Springs first came to prominence in the 19th century as a spa town, because of its mineral springs which flow constantly at nearly 32 °C (90 °F). It is famous for the Little White House, where Franklin D. Roosevelt lived while president, because of his paralytic illness. He died there in 1945 and it is now a public museum. Roosevelt first came in the 1920s in hopes that the warm water would improve his paraplegia, at the time thought to be the result of polio. He was a constant visitor for two decades. The town is still home to the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation (Roosevelt's former polio hospital) which remains a world-renowned comprehensive rehabilitation center including a physical rehabilitation hospital and vocational rehabilitation unit. The springs are not available for public use as a bath/spa resort, but they are used by the Roosevelt Institute for therapeutic purposes.
