Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace, New York Photos

President Theodore Roosevelt won such respect for acts like starting the National Parks system & being a reformer & the first American to win the Nobel Peace prize, that after his death, a movement rebuilt his birthplace as an ongoing monument to him. The row house with most of the original furnishings of his wealthy parents plus a museum wing telling Teddy's life story are run by the National Park Service at 28 E. 20th St. in New York City.
