Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site on US 9. Overlooking the Hudson River on more than 700 acres, it was the birthplace and lifelong home of the nation's longest-serving president. The 1826 house remains almost exactly as it was at the time of Roosevelt's death in 1945.
President and Mrs. Roosevelt are buried in the Rose Garden northeast of the house; the graves are marked by a plain white marble monument. The estate includes stables and an icehouse. A 22-minute orientation film is shown at the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center, and there are walking trails on the grounds.
