FDR’s Little White House and 13 other sites free one day in February 

The State Parks and Historic Sites Division of the Department of Natural Resources is offering free admission at several locations on Sunday, Feb. 5. The event is part of Georgia History Festival’s statewide celebration of “Super Museum Sunday.” Visitors can walk in the footsteps of Civil War and Revolutionary War soldiers, tour FDR’s modest cottage, explore plantations, climb to the top of an Indian mound and experience more during this annual event.  Admission costs typically range from $2-$12, and a few of these historic sites are typically closed.
