Step back in time and relive the moments when Theodore Roosevelt became President in 1901 following the assassination of President McKinley. Walk in the house where Roosevelt was sworn in as President. The house is now turned into an interactive museum featuring the days of Pan-American Exposition, the issues that Roosevelt faced, and the events that occurred during his inauguration.
