FDR Cottage

On a vacation to Maine last year we took a one day trip to Campobello Island and visited the Franklin D Roosevelt Cottage. You can read the history of the island for yourself but the bridge was opened in 1962 and the park was opened in 1964 but wasn't officially opened until 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson and Canadian Premier Lester Pearson got together for the dedication. Canada, on every trip I've made there, always does the best job of keeping things pristine and beautiful and Campobello Island is no exception. From the time we crossed the bridge from Lubec Maine into New Brunswick, Canada the beauty was just amazing. I have other hubs that show the outdoor beauty but this one is dedicated more to the cottage and the beauty of the inside. The house was great and filled with many very small rooms and what took me aback was the small beds. FDR was a good size guy and for the life of me I have no idea how he slept in a bed that small but the house was stunning and so were the contents and the folks that told the story of the cottage. The knowledge they had was priceless. It was a great day trip and I hope you at least enjoy the photos and at best decide to take the journey and see the beauty for yourselves. I know the winters up there are brutal but living there must be special. I'm considering it myself. Peace!!

      Hello Justom,

      I really enjoyed your photos. I actually was smiling the whole time I was looking at your photos of FDR's cottage.

      I grew up hearing about FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt, whom my mother adored.

      Thanks for sharing.
