In the reconstructed Elkhorn Ranch cabin, which will be built using 1884 methods, the visitor will feel like Theodore Roosevelt may have just walked out to check the cattle and will return at any moment. Similarly, in the reading room, perhaps TR has been called away by his wife Edith to discuss the guest list for dinner or to arbitrate some scrape the children have gotten into, but his open book awaits his return.
The visitor experience will be engaging, entertaining, challenging, and inspiring for Presidential Library patrons at all levels. Live interpreters will make history relevant to visitors’ lives. Exhibits will include cutting-edge presentations alongside traditional displays of authentic and period artifacts.
