Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site

National Park Service, New York.

As president, Theodore Roosevelt created protections for ordinary citizens, began regulation of big business, and made the US a major force in international affairs. Yet one of the most important presidencies in America's history nearly didn't happen. See the place where a brief, emotional, and improvised ceremony in Buffalo, NY brought TR into office, and forever altered the nation.


The TR Inaugural Site is located on the north edge of downtown Buffalo on Delaware Avenue, between Allen and North Streets. Free parking is available to the rear. For details, see
