It was the home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and their children, and Sara Delano Roosevelt, FDR’s mother, from 1908-1941. We are expanding our public tour program to include tours on Fridays and Saturdays.  Five to six training sessions will be held in December and January with tours to start in February.
