Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 16, 1980):
The district includes two vacation homes (1928-32 and 1932-45) of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who found relief from polio in the mineral springs of this small resort town, and the Warm Springs Hospital, founded by Roosevelt to aid fellow victims of the disease. Roosevelt's efforts led to the "March of Dimes." He died at his "Little White House" in Warm Springs (April 12, 1945).

Condition:
The condition of the site is excellent. There are no major structural and/or mechanical issues pending.

All the shutters on the structures in the historic area were replaced in 2008. This is the Little White House, Servant's Qrts and Guest House. There were also repairs made to the back porch railing of the Little White House.
