Roosevelt’s Little White House
This was the home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, America’s only President elected four times. Roosevelt visited Warm Springs hoping that the naturally warm waters found in the small town would help ease the paralysis he suffered from polio. Roosevelt’s home, which he also designed, contains many original furnishings including his wheelchair he designed himself using a kitchen chair. The sun deck overlooks a deep wooded ravine with panoramic views. The therapeutic pools museum is located one mile from the house. These 88-degree waters originate 3,800 feet below the earth's surface. A fund-raising campaign is underway to build a new museum honoring this great world leader
Red Oak Covered Bridge, one of the few remaining Town Lattice bridges constructed by noted bridgebuilder and freed slave Horace King. The Flint River and its tributaries form an important part of the Meriwether-Pike Scenic Byway. As part of one of the state’s major river systems, the Flint River through Meriwether County ranges from being wide and slow-moving to a fast-flowing current with shoals and rock outcroppings. Red Oak Creek, which flows into the Flint, makes appearances along the Scenic Byway at the Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge and at Jones Mill, where the creek becomes a large, still mill pond. There has been a mill at Jones Mill on Red Oak Creek since 1828 when John Jones established a grist mill. The current dam was built in 1950 and the building dates from the early 20th century. For many of the years, the Jones Mill area was the hub for the local farming community.
