Partnership with Historic Sites

Since its inception, the Theodore Roosevelt Association has been instrumental in preserving sites of importance to Roosevelt’s life and legacy, including:

  • Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Roosevelt’s family home in Oyster Bay, NY from 1887 until the death of his widow, Edith, in 1948
  • Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site at 28 East 20th Street in Manhattan, the reconstructed brownstone house where Roosevelt was born in 1858
  • Theodore Roosevelt Island, the former Mason’s Island and living memorial to TR outside Washington, DC
  • Pine Knot, the Roosevelt’s presidential retreat in Albemarle County, VA, which Edith Roosevelt purchased in 1905
We maintain relationships with and support the efforts of all these sites as well as others that have a connection to Roosevelt, including:

 

  • Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site in Buffalo, NY, where, in 1901, Roosevelt was sworn-in as president after President McKinley died
  • Theodore Roosevelt National Park, three separate units in western North Dakota where Roosevelt lived and worked as a rancher in the 1880s
  • New York City’s American Museum of Natural History, founded by Roosevelt’s father, Theodore Roosevelt Sr., and home to the New York State Theodore Roosevelt Memorial
  • The Roosevelt Study Center, one of Western Europe’s premier research and conference centers dedicated to understanding the history and culture of the US and its meaning for Europe.
