Historic Sites of The Roosevelts

Take a ride out to Cove Neck on Long Island and visit Sagamore Hill; the one-time home of 26th President Theodore Roosevelt. While you’re learning all about TR, head on out to Manhattan, between Broadway and Park Avenue South. See the brownstone building that was his childhood home at Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace.

You haven’t gotten your fill of Roosevelt history yet, though. Take a trip just north of Poughkeepsie where you’ll head into Hyde Park and see the birthplace, lifelong home, and burial of 32nd President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Stay in Hyde Park and go just two miles east to explore the national historic site commemorating FDR’s wife and First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt at Stone Cottage.

Of all the legendary New York families, none have come close to making a mark on American history as indelible and distinct as what the Roosevelts have contributed. Bring some friends and make a day of it to form a closer tie to the heritage of this country, as well as the Empire State.
