An official Path Through History Site! The Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan preserves the childhood home of the only president born in New York City. Raised in a townhouse at 28 E. 20th St., Theodore Roosevelt would grow up to be our 26th President and become immortalized on Mount Rushmore. The townhouse features exhibit galleries, an introductory film, five historically furnished rooms with many Roosevelt family-owned items, a bookstore, and special events.
