Martin Van Buren Nat'l Hist Site

— National Park Service —

You are standing along one of the few remaining unpaved stretches of the Old Post Road. In 1839 when Martin Van Buren bought this property, the Old Post Road was the main route on the east side of the Hudson River between Manhattan and Albany, the state capital. Prominent citizens and politicians traveling along the Old Post Road would stop at Lindenwald to pay their respects to the former President.

Van Buren had many reasons for choosing to buy this old house and farm in his hometown during the waning days of his presidency. Chief among them must have been its location along this important and highly traveled thoroughfare.
