Welcome to The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site

Bringing a legend to life

It's one of the most amazing and improbable moments in American history.  It's the story of a man thrust into national prominence following great tragedy.  A man who went on to become one of the most influential U.S. Presidents of all time.  And you can experience it for yourself, at the house where Theodore Roosevelt was sworn into office, where the modern presidency began, and where a legend was introduced to the world.
