NEW YORK (AP) – The National Park Service is celebrating Theodore Roosevelt’s 150th birthday with a two-day party at the New York City brownstone where he was born.

The Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site is located in Manhattan’s Gramercy neighborhood. Roosevelt was born there Oct. 27, 1858.

As part of the birthday festivities there will be a one-man play by a Roosevelt re-enactor, a period music performance and children’s games on Sunday. Then “Theodore Rex” author Edmund Morris will give a presentation on the 26th president on Monday.

There are five national park sites dedicated to Roosevelt, including the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site in Long Island’s Oyster Bay.
