About this location
Roosevelt Cabin
Roosevelt Cabin is one of the oldest buildings on the main campus. Martha Berry lived in the cabin for four years. In the early days, the cabin was the heart of the campus. It caught the overflow from the small school kitchen in Brewster Hall. There was usually a large black iron pot of beans boiling on one fireplace and potatoes roasting in a bed of coals on another. Daily prayer services were also held at the cabin, and Ms. Berry taught Sunday school here.
Fun Fact
Martha Berry entertained the Honorable Hoke Smith, a distinguished Georgian who served as a U.S. secretary of the interior, U.S. senator, and governor of Georgia, at the cabin. The most famous visitor to the cabin was President Theodore Roosevelt, who had lunch there during his visit on Oct. 8, 1910. The next day the cabin was renamed Roosevelt Cabin by Miss Berry.
