Roosevelt's "Beloved Island" Memorial
For many years, Franklin D. Roosevelt summered on Campobello Island. As an adult, he shared with his family the same active pursuits he enjoyed on the island as child. Although he visited less frequently after contracting polio, Campobello remained important to FDR. Today Roosevelt Campobello International Park serves as a memorial to FDR and a symbol of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada.
Did You Know?
Fishing remains the principal industry on Campbello Island, just as it was during FDR's era. Along the park's western shores, you can see herring weirs and nets holding farm-raised salmon.
