In 2009 I visited the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum at Hyde Park, NY. The president is buried here on the family estate Springwood in the Rose Garden together with his wife Eleanor.
In the garden is a lovely sculpture of the two, Franklin was born in 1882 and died in 1945, Eleanor was born in 1884 and died in 1962. He was the 32-nd president of the US from 1933-1945.
The family home of Franklin.
In 1921 Franklin felt ill with poliomyelitis which paralysed his lower torso. He had to use a wheelchair and for that reason another house was built on the estate which had no stairs. The museum is in here and is very interesting with all kind of personal things and the original decorated rooms. Have a look here.
