Nearby in Oyster Bay, TR's home

Sagamore Hill


Theodore Roosevelt and Family at Sagamore Hill

Sagamore Hill

I wished a big piazza, very broad at the n.w. corner where we could in rocking chairs
look at the sunset; a library with a shallow bay window opening south, the parlor or drawing room occupying
all the western end of the lower floor; as broad a hall as our space would permit; big fireplaces for logs;
.the top floor the gun room occupying the western end so that north and west it looked over the Sound and Bay.


The site encompasses 83.02 acres. Access to the Theodore Roosevelt home is only through guided tours. The Home is a 23 room Queen Anne Style structure. 93% of the furnishings are original to the home.nbsp- Theodore Roosevelt, 1883
