Sagamore Hill was the family home of our 26th President Theodore Roosevelt, his wife Edith and their six children. He built the Queen Anne Shingle style home on 155 acres between 1884 and 1886 and it became known as the "Summer White House" during his Presidency from 1901-1909. In addition to his home, the site contained a working farm with numerous outbuildings, pastures, a garden, orchard, woodlands, a tidal marsh and a beach on Cold Spring Harbor. This "birds-eye view" depicts the site's structures and landscape features in 1918, approximately one year before Theodore Roosevelt's death. Edith Roosevelt remained in the family home and managed the farm until her death in 1948.

" . . . fond as I am of the White House . . . there isn't any place in the world like home - like Sagamore Hill, where things are our own . . . and where it is real country." - Theodore Roosevelt to his daughter Ethel, June 11, 1906
