Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial

The 32nd and longest serving President in history is memorialized in West Potomac Park. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (often referred as FDR) served as President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. Beating incumbent Herbert Hoover in 1933, FDR served as President during the largest US economic crisis and the majority of World War II.

Despite his paralysis from the waist down caused by polio that he contracted in the 1920's, Roosevelt is considered to be one of the most important, influential US Presidents. He lead the United States out of the Great Depression and into war with one of the greatest oppressive regimes of all time. With victory in sight, FDR died before the war was over but his legacy laid the groundwork for the second half of the twentieth century. Today, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial stands as an everlasting monument to this important figure. The memorial is designed in four sections or "rooms" over 7.5 acres, each symbolizing the four terms of his presidency. Considering the disabilities that Roosevelt suffered, the creators of the memorial intended to design the memorial to be completely accessible for visitors with disabilities. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial was dedicated on May 2, 1997 by President Bill Clinton.
