The young lady that gave our tour was from the area and made the tour enjoyable. The home is worth the visit to see how FDRs style differed from the Vanderbilt life style

FDR's mother once said that the house had a humble feel inside because their family was "old money" and they didn't need to show off. You can see the interior of this house with a tour only. Our guide was a treasure trove of information...More
