About the FDR Suite at Adams House
From 1900-1904, young Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with his Groton chum Lathrop Brown, rented rooms in Westmorly Court, the newest and most luxurious building on Harvard's Gold Coast. Equipped with all the latest innovations – central heat, electricity, a modern "hygienic" bathroom – the suite contained over 600 sq. feet of living space spread over 4 rooms, with 14' ceilings, French doors, and a working fireplace. These spacious quarters, which were originally decorated in high Victorian style by FDR and his mother Sara, have been recently returned to their pristine Gilded Age condition, filled with period furniture and antiques and restored to their 1900 appearance, both as the only existing memorial to the former President at Harvard, as well as a living museum of daily College life at the turn of the twentieth century.
With Special Thanks to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Foundation

The FDR Suite is located in Harvard Square. The easiest access is through Adams House B-Entry, at the corner of Bow and Arrow Streets, between Mass Ave and Mt. Auburn, across the street from the very visible clock spire of St. Paul's church. There is a large plaque commemorating FDR in front of the building - hard to miss! If you use a GPS system you can enter "15 Bow Street" as an address, though there are no visible street numbers. The door is up the stairs to the left of the plaque.
