Our mission is to ensure the long-term health and integrity of these historic sites, buildings, gardens, landscapes, and forests while making improvements that advance public understanding of the world in which the Roosevelts lived.
To achieve these goals, we raise funds to supplement the resources of our partner, the National Park Service. National Historic Sites at Hyde Park include the President’s homes, Springwood and Top Cottage; Eleanor Roosevelt’s home, Val-Kill; and the former Vanderbilt estate, which for its historic significance and scenic beauty, F.D.R. established as a National Historic Site in 1939.
In 2021 we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the FDR Estate’s inclusion in the National Park System. Due to restrictions with public visitations, our celebration was virtual which gives us an opportunity to share it with you here.
