Roosevelt Campobello International Park preserves the house and surrounding landscape of the Roosevelt summer retreat where, in August 1921, future president Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with poliomyelitis at the age of 39. The park occupies most of the southern end of Campobello Island, New Brunswick, just offshore of Lubec, Maine.

Administrative history

The park is owned and administered by the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission, created by international treaty signed by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson and President Lyndon B. Johnson on January 22, 1964. The park was established on July 7, 1964. Both countries provide financial support to the park. It is an affiliated area of the National Park Service (U.S.) and Parks Canada.
