All that is within me cries to go back to my home by the Hudson River. - Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1944
It was only when passing through the gates at the end of this road that FDR felt truly at home. Roosevelt loved Springwood's forests and fields. He found stability in the peaceful regularity of life here. As he neared the end of his life, Roosevelt often experienced his longing to return to this beautiful setting.
