Franklin Delano Roosevelt came to Warm Springs for it's curative powers with the problems of polio. In doing so, he had a small home built which was renamed the Little White House. The locals were thrilled to have someone of Roosevelt's stature and would tell stories about who built parts, worked in areas, etc.
The site today is popular for tourists and school groups to visit. Nearby Warm Springs has a main street of fun shops to visit and good places to eat. Many people like to extend their visit to the town of Franklin.
My favorite memory of Warm Springs is going with school groups to tour the site. One year in the early eighties, a school group decided to shoplift the gift store. Instead of finding itself on the 24-hour news cycle with a what is the world coming to, the teachers had the kids to one by one return the merchandise or pay for what they took.
It was embarrassing for the school. Anyone who works with children understands that they can do some pretty obnoxious things and have that group mentality take over where they think it is OK. I know a lot of parents were contacted.
As a retired teacher, I know that most parents and children are cooperative and easy to work with. We get caught up in the sensational news we hear and forget that most people are decent.
