Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site

Screen Shot 2014-08-29 at 3.24.47 PM

One of the most influential presidents of our nation was Theodore Roosevelt. He was inaugurated into office as the 26th president in 1901. The site where this occurred has been protected as the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site and is located in Buffalo, New York. The building of his inauguration was the home of the Ansley Wilcox family. Throughout the visit of this historic and educational site, you will encounter many people who will share with you their thoughts of President Roosevelt’s presidency. A few of these people include Booker T. Washington, John Muir, and Jane Addams.

The house was originally constructed during the early 1800s as a headquarters for the United States military. This site was called either the Poinsett Barracks or the Buffalo Barracks and even stationed federal troops during the War of 1812. Later on, the house became home for a short while to Ann Mackall Taylor Wood who was the daughter of Zachary Taylor, our nation’s 12th president. This site saw many changes over the decades and after the death of Ansley Wilcox and his wife, the home was remodeled into a restaurant. It was declared a National Historic Site in 1966 and became a public museum in 1971.

Today, you can enjoy a guided tour of the museum that includes three rooms, which have been restored. There are also audio and video clips along with interactive activities. You should allow at least a full hour to enjoy the entirety of the tour. There are only guided tours of this site so please check with the schedule to find times. Admission is just $10 per adult and $5 for children age 6-18. Children under the age of 6 are free.

President Theodore Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the Treaty of Portsmouth that ended the Russo-Japanese War. This made him the first American to ever win this honorable award. During his years in the office, he also asserted America’s authority across the seas, advocated consumer protection laws and expanded the powers of the president. His legacy helped to shape America into what it is today.

Load up the Pittsburgh RV and head out to this historic site. It is also just a 20 minute drive to Niagara Falls, which has spectacular camping areas for your Clem’s travel trailer.

The Best Coffee on the Road

Coffee gets a lot of people up and going in the morning. When you’re on the road, it can be a challenge to make that perfect cup of coffee that you’re used to at home. If you are looking for a way to brew a steaming and delicious cup of joe while traveling, check out a French press.

The French press is a popular choice for avid coffee lovers all over the world. They have described the taste as close to a Starbucks brew with a smooth, full flavor. The French press is great for smaller spaces or even around the campfire. Traditional drip coffee pots use filters of some sort that absorb and hold back the natural oils of the coffee during its brewing proses. A French press uses no filters so it allows the coffee drinker to receive the full taste of their coffee. Another advantage of a French press is that it is extremely simple to clean and comes apart easily. Now that you know about it, here’s how to make the perfect cup of coffee in your Clem’s RV using the French press.

It’s best to use a medium to coarse grind, two tablespoons per mug. Start by boiling a kettle of water. The ideal temperature should be between 195 and 200 degrees. After boiling, allow the water to rest for two minutes. Do this so you do not scald the coffee. Remove the lid and plunger of the French press and add two tablespoons of your favorite ground coffee to the bottom of your press. Now that your water has rested, pour it into the press. You will notice that the coffee grinds will float, this is normal. If you desire, gently stir the water and the grinds will sink.

Place lid on the top and allow to steep for a total of three to five minutes, depending on desired strength. Once time is up, hold the lid of your press with one hand and push the pluger down with the other. The screen on the plunger will push the grinds to the bottom of the press. Remember to take your time when pushing down the plunger for the best results.

Enjoy a fresh, satisfying cup of coffee right from your Pittsburgh RV.
