Where

This historic house and National Historic Site in Hyde Park, New York is the family estate, known as “Springwood,” of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In 1866, James Roosevelt, Franklin’s father, bought the estate with its circa 1800 house that has undergone many transformations with each owner. Franklin Roosevelt would be born in the house in 1882 and later live in it with his wife, Eleanor. Throughout his life and career, FDR continually returned to his estate in Hyde Park, saying “all that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River.” Roosevelt donated his estate to become a National Historic Site with the first US Presidential Library.
