Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay, New York

Sagamore Hill is the home of Teddy Roosevelt.  The 23 room Queen Anne house was built in 1885.  He became president in 1901.  He died in 1919 at the home at age 60.  No one else occupied the home.

Ted Jr., and his wife Eleanor A. Roosevelt (not to be confused with Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884-1962, First Lady to FDR 1933-1945) built Old Orchard in 1938,  on 4 acres purchased from Ted's mother.  Ted died in 1944 on military campaign in France.  Eleanor died in 1960 at their home.  The National Park Service acquired the property in 1962.
