Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site

Tucked between Broadway and Park Avenue South in New York City you can find the brownstone where Theodore Roosevelt was born in 1858 and lived for fourteen years. Though the original home was torn down in 1916, the site was bought by the Women’s Roosevelt Memorial Association, and the brownstone was rebuilt and decorated by his sisters and wife with much of the original furniture. The home features five period rooms, two museum galleries, and a bookstore.

Theodore Roosevelt was a highly accomplished and influential man in contemporary American history. Not only did he hold office as President and Vice-President of the United States, he was also an author, conservationist, and rancher and held office as Governor of New York. He even won a Nobel Peace Prize for his negotiations to end the war between Russia and Japan. One of his great accomplishments was the expansion of the National Park Service with the establishment of five national parks and four national monuments during his presidency.
