The village of Warm Springs developed as a resort beginning in 1832. People would visit the area, located sixty miles south of Atlanta, for its natural springs. Franklin Delano Roosevelt vacationed at the springs to improve his health when he was Governor of New York and President of the United States. He built a house on land he owned in Warm Springs that became known as the Little White House. He later founded a rehabilitation center, the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation, now called the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation.
