Sagamore Hill National Historic Site [NY]

Sagamore Hill was the home of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, from 1885 until his death in 1919. During Roosevelt's time in office, his "Summer White House" was the focus of international attention. The house itself dates to the 19th century, and is situated on 83 acres of forest, meadow, salt marsh, and beach.

The site offers podcasts, online photo galleries, sound bytes, teacher preparation packets, suggested reading, and field trip programming.
