A Trip To The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site: Buffalo, New York

Theodore Roosevelt Inagural Site Buffalo New York

Hi everyone.

I greet you sleep-deprived and five pounds fluffier, but I’m so happy to be back! Me, Miles, and our son returned from Buffalo, New York yesterday.

Miles is packing the good photos on his camera, but I wanted to share some photos from my tour of the TR Inaugural Site. (Please excuse the crummy photos taken from my old phone.)

The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site.

This is the private residence where Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated into presidency in Buffalo, New York 1901.

President William McKinley was shot at Buffaloโ€™s Pan-American Exposition on September 6th, 1901. Vice President Theodore Roosevelt took the “oath of office” in this exact spot September 14th, 1901โ€”the same day McKinley died from his wounds. The private residence belonged to Roosevelt’s good friend Ansley Wilcox.

Mr. Roosevelt kindly took a selfie with myself and my sister-in-law Jen (on the left).

It’s hard being President…

Currently writing a YA novel. I love reading about everything, truly I'm not a book snob. Lately I have been "reading" a lot of picture books to my baby boy. In my past life before motherhood, I was a professional technical editor and writer.
