WARM SPRINGS, Ga. -- President Franklin Roosevelt's Georgia retreat is making a one-day offer of admitting visitors for free.

The Little White House in Warm Springs, which Roosevelt built the year before he became president in 1933, served as his personal getaway during his years in office.

Roosevelt's home is now operated by a nonprofit group and is open for public tours. Brian Roslund, president of Friends of Roosevelt's Little White House, says the site will offer free admission to visitors Saturday to coincide with National Public Lands Day.

Visitors can tour Roosevelt's home, which has been preserved much as he left it, as well as a museum that includes the unfinished portrait Roosevelt was posing for in April 1945 when he suffered the stroke that caused his death.
