More About Warm Springs by David M. Burke Jr; Odie A. Burke
 
 
 
Overview
The Spirit of Warm Springs is what Franklin D. Roosevelt described as the peaceful atmosphere and healing qualities he found along the slopes of Georgia s Pine Mountain. But long before FDR, the warm springs attracted people. Legend has it the Creek Indians used them for healing. European settlers used them as a revenue source. In the 1800s, the springs became a resort area, and the village of Warm Springs, Georgia, was founded. Rail brought visitors to this farming community for decades until travelers sought different destinations. By the 1920s, Warm Springs began slipping into the Great Depression. Destiny intervened when Franklin Roosevelt arrived in Warm Springs seeking a cure for his polio. After his first visit, he was able to move his leg. The news drew others afflicted with polio. Warm Springs provided FDR with hope. He returned the gift through New Deal programs and the March of Dimes while restoring hope in America. The waters are still used for healing, the town of Warm Springs thrives, and FDR s Little White House is a memorial to the foremost statesman and political leader of the 20th century."
