NY - Hyde Park - FDR NHS - Roosevelt Home - Eleanor Roosevelt's bedroom

Eleanor never felt at home here, because she regarded it as the domain of her mother-in-law, Sara Roosevelt. Occupied by Eleanor after FDR's illness, this small room and its few furnishings convey that feeling. Eleanor and Franklin built Val-Kill in 1926, as her retreat in the eastern section of the Roosevelt estate. She remained at Val-Kill and pursued her interests in world peace and human rights after the President's death.
