Martin Van Buren Nat'l Hist Site
— National Park Service —Van Buren's 1839 purchase of the fine eighteenth-century house and farm he renamed "Lindenwald" represented his drastic rise from tavern-keeper's son to prominent gentleman. While the fields and orchards of Lindenwald proved to be bountiful, Van Buren's elegant home provided equally fertile ground upon which he cultivated valuable political relationships. Throughout his 21 years of residency a steady stream of politicians, celebrities and businessmen were graciously entertained inside Lindenwald, most notably the "Great Compromiser," Kentucky Senator Henry Clay, in 1849.
