We took the guided tour of Eleanor Roosevelt's Val Kill cottage, and it was highly worthwhile. Our guide had known Eleanor personally and had been a guest there during the former first lady's lifetime. She let us see all of the house, as well as the original stone cottage. It was all recreated very faithfully, and the atmosphere was cozy and warm as it must have been back then.
Our tour guide shared a lot of information, and I almost felt like we had stepped back in time as we went through Eleanor's beloved home and memories. This tour was a wonderful example of the meaningful experiences that can be found in a beautiful historic place. I think our specific guide made the difference.
