Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site

Located at 28 East 20th Street, Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site is a reconstruction of the house Roosevelt was born in on that site in 1858. Acquired in 1919 by the Women’s Roosevelt Memorial Association (later a part of the Theodore Roosevelt Association), they began an extensive renovation of the property to revert it to an exact reproduction of how it would have looked when Roosevelt was a boy.  After a three year renovation, the memorial opened to the public in 1923.
