Visiting Hyde Park
FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY FDR wore kilts and skirts until age 5
I visited FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY today. This was really his mother's home and is plain and uninteresting compared to the lavish home of his neighbor Frederick Vanderbilt just down the street.!The grounds are beautiful and the view of the Hudson River is beyond gorgeous. I loved their barn and the little kilt he wore that is displayed in the Presidential Library which is also on the grounds. Mrs. Sarah Roosevelt seemed to love lamp shades. The one above is made from old Latin handpainted (probably) sheepskin song sheets.
