Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt with baby Anna, and dog, "Duffy" (1907)
FDR and his family spent summer vacations on their beloved Campobello Island over a period of fifty-six years.
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s experiences, and what he learned on Campobello, played a role in shaping a great leader of the United States and of the world.
Eleanor's love of Campobello Island began from her first visit as a young girl of nineteen, and continued to inspire her in later life, as she grew into an independent and respected woman.
