Description

Black & white photograph, from a set of souvenir cards. From the reverse: "Situated on one of the oldest Hudson River estates, the Roosevelt Home, birthplace of the 32nd President of the United States, was built about 1826 & renovated in 1915. Adjacent to the home is the Rose Garden, where the President & his wife, Eleanor, are buried, & the Roosevelt Library which contains a rich collection of memorabilia associated with them. This is the porch where Franklin Roosevelt stood to greet important guests. The bronze bell, cast in Spain in 1714, was acquired by FDR in the Philippines in 1916 while he was Assistant Secretary of the Navy."
