Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, April 2017

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site commemorates the life of Theodore Roosevelt—writer, statesman, officer, adventurer, and the 26th President of the United States. It was here, at a mansion on New York’s Long Island, that “Teddy” lived much of his life, from 1885 until his death in 1919. Today, the National Park Service offers tours of the Roosevelt Home, which is filled with an incredible collection of Roosevelt’s home furnishings, including dozens of mounted animal heads—a testament to one of Teddy’s favorite hobbies: hunting. There is also a separate Theodore Roosevelt Museum on the grounds, and a nature trail offers a view of Cold Spring Harbor, an inlet of the Long Island Sound.
