Sagamore Hill National Historic Site

This land around you had always been a working farm. When Theodore Roosevelt bought the property in 1880 it already included an orchard, fields of corn, asparagus, and buckwheat as well as an old barn. After the purchase, Roosevelt had his own ideas of what the farm should look like and cleared about 47 acres, including pastures. With a garden, fields, orchard, pigs, cows, horses, and chickens the farm required a full-time farm manager and several full and part-time farm hands. Even the Roosevelt family had chores to do. Edith kept the farm books; the children tended their sections of the gardens, pulled weeds, and brought in the milk; while Roosevelt loved to roll up his sleeves at haying time.
