"For unflagging interest andenjoyment, a household of children, if things goreasonably well, certainly makes all other forms ofsuccess and achievement lose their importance bycomparison."
-Theodore Roosevelt, 1913
America of the early 20th century thrilled at the latest report of TR's six children and their "White House Gang" of friends, a rambunctious brood who always seemed to be up to something. If the nation wondered what they would do next, TR himself was unperturbed. He was as likely to be in the midst of the hijinks as supervising. He always found time to enjoy the company of family. Come spend an afternoon at the TR Site with your own family! Explore the Site for half-price admission. Children can try out our new Junior Ranger activity booklet to win a prize. Story time, Victorian games and crafts, and a quintessential Rooseveltian pastime, the point-to-point walk, round out the day. Bring the whole family for a fun and relaxing day!
