Teddy Roosevelt Museum
The 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment – Rough Riders, Inc was founded in 1978 to create and perpetuate a living memorial to the unique accomplishments of President Theodore Roosevelt and the members of the 1st US Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, known as the Rough Riders.
It is the intent of the members of the organization to develop ways to celebrate this great moment in American History; to collect and display artifacts of the era; to educate and emphasize to generations to come the importance of this feat by military forces; and to create other memorials as shall be appropriate from time to time.
Our Regimental Headquarters is located at 601 N 19th Street, Tampa, Florida and houses our Museum, our meeting facilities, our float barn and administrative offices. The Museum is available to be visited by appointment at no cost Monday-Friday, 11AM-4PM. Please coordinate with our Administrative Assistant in advance at 813-248-1898, or firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment. One of our several volunteer staff members will provide a tour.
