Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site Tours

Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site
Step back in time, to September 14, 1901, when Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated the 26th President of the United States following the assassination of President William McKinley. The Ansley-Wilcox house has been preserved as the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site, and appears much as it did on that fateful day.
 
The Basics
To visit the historic Victorian-era mansion you must join an on-site guided tour. Your walk through the restored rooms provides an immersive experience. Highlights include the site of the swearing in, as well as interactive exhibits, which cover McKinley’s assassination and death; Roosevelt’s emergency swearing-in; the Ansley Wilcox residence and family; Roosevelt’s life and presidency; and the Pan American Exposition of 1902. Audio and video exhibits help bring events to life.
 
Pre-book your tickets to avoid waiting in line, and reserve your tour to avoid disappointment. Docent-led tours occur hourly, on the half hour, and last for around one hour. Following the guided tour, you can explore the exhibits, house, and nearby sites, on your own.
