Neighborhoods in the Network / Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site (Buffalo, NY)

06.24.09 | Martha Manikas-Foster

In 1901 Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated as president of the United States -- not in Washington, DC, but in a private home in Buffalo, NY. After taking that oath of office in this home on Delaware Avenue, Roosevelt would go on to change the role of the American presidency. For a year and a half this national historic site was closed for a physical and technological renovation, but June 20, 2009 it reopened to the public.

Join Martha Manikas-Foster for this Neighborhoods in the Network report to learn both about the site’s new interactive exhibits as well as why learning about Roosevelt is still important today.
