The Roosevelts at Campobello
Campobello was the "beloved" summer retreat for the Roosevelt family, shaping Franklin into a great leader, and encouraging Eleanor to become an independent woman.
“A little simplification would be the first step toward rational living, I think.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
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.
