Named for the geothermal pools found in the area, Warm Springs, Georgia is perhaps best known as the former second home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He used the healing waters to treat his polio. Originally settled as Bullochville in the 19th century, it became a spa town for travelers on their way elsewhere in the region. Today, the town has a number of buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and the main street has a few shops, restaurants and activities. Warm Springs has less than 500 full-time residents.
