Now a National Historic Site, this house is not where young Teddy Roosevelt spent his boyhood, but it is a very close facsimile. The original house was demolished while Roosevelt was still alive. After demolishing the uncle’s house next door, the Women’s Roosevelt Memorial Association commissioned Theodate Pope Riddle, one of America’s first female architects, to reconstruct the late president’s birthplace as it had been in 1865, when Teddy Roosevelt was seven years old.
