Theodore Roosevelt purchased land in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York, in 1880 and built the home where he lived until his death on January 6, 1919. From 1902 to 1908 Sagamore Hill served as the Summer White House. Throughout his years here, Theodore Roosevelt attracted national and international figures from every walk of life to his home. Here, he and his wife Edith raised six children. An active, family-centered man, Roosevelt ended his busy workdays at 4 p.m. to play with his children.
The rambling Queen Anne-style house, furnished with Roosevelt family pieces, has changed little from when it was the home of the 26th President of the United States and his family. The National Park Service maintains the house, grounds, and collections to reflect the lifestyle of this remarkable man. Commemorate Sagamore Hill with this collectible pin!
