The description states:

The Little White House at Warm Springs was President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Georgia home. The Paul’s Scarlet Climber roses were in bloom when he died in this house on April 12, 1945.

–Roosevelt was instrumental in establishing a polio treatment center at Warm Springs, and built this residence there to facilitate his frequent visits. While it was not widely known at the time, Roosevelt used this retreat as a way of spending time with his mistress, Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd.
