The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site maintains historic headquarters in a home formerly owned by Ansley Wilcox, a contemporary of Roosevelt’s who hosted the former president’s oath-signing ceremony in 1901. Groups of up to 15 people embark on one-hour guided tours, traversing rooms such as the formal dining room, where Roosevelt won America’s first hot-dog-eating contest, or the Morning room, where he penned his first official presidential proclamation. The residence’s second floor houses a recreation of Roosevelt’s White House office, where guests can take a seat at a presidential desk equipped with a touch-screen computer allowing digital exploration of Roosevelt’s legislation. Inside the home’s Issues Theater, photographs of Roosevelt’s political peers and favorite rock bands adorn the walls, and a Roosevelt-esque voice narrates what may have been his innermost thoughts during the time of his presidency. Tours take place hourly, beginning at 9:30 a.m. on weekdays and 12:30 p.m. on weekends. The last tour of each day begins at 3:30 p.m.
