AAA Editor Notes
Roosevelt Campobello International Park is connected to Lubec, Maine, by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Bridge, and from June through September by ferry from Deer Island. Here visitors can explore Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt's summer home in the early years of the 20th century and find out why they and their children so loved the people and the natural beauty of their “beloved island.”
The centerpiece of the 1,134-hectare (2,802-acre) memorial is the 34-room “cottage” filled with family mementos. The visitor center has an introductory film and exhibits pertaining to the Roosevelts' history and the friendship between the U.S. and Canada. A guided tour of the grounds is available. “Tea With Eleanor,” the story of Eleanor Roosevelt's life, is offered daily by expert guides and includes tea and cookies.
The park's natural areas feature scenic drives and walking trails along coves, bogs, beaches and cliffs.
