Martin Van Buren Nat'l Hist Site
— National Park Service —In 1850, from where you now stand, you would have been able to view Van Buren's house garden, farm office, fish ponds, green house, red hillside barn, hot house and carriage barn. The farm manager's house (now altered) may still be seen. Van Buren increased his acreage by purchasing additional tracts of land between the end of his property and the Kinderhook Creek. This watercourse formed the southwest boundary of Lindenwald. It lies directly ahead, below the terraced fields. Produce grown at Lindenwald, such as potatoes, apples and hay, was shipped down the Hudson River for sale in New York City. Van Buren experimented with many varieties of trees and plants, and grafted his own fruit trees.
