WARM SPRINGS, GA(AP) - The Little White House in western Georgia plans to mimic an Easter tradition at that other White House.
The Little White House historic site plans to hold an Easter egg roll Sunday, just like the annual event held on the White House lawn in Washington for children and their parents.
Franklin Roosevelt built the Little White House in Warm Springs in 1932 while he was governor of New York, before he was inaugurated as president in 1933. He first visited Warm Springs in 1924 hoping to find a cure for polio, which had struck him in 1921. Swimming in the 88-degree spring waters brought him some improvement.
The Georgia celebration, sponsored by the Friends of Roosevelt's Little White House, will also include an Easter egg hunt.
