Our goal is to ensure that future generations understand the life and legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, his family, and the significant events associated with him.

I had the opportunity to visit and tour Sagamore Hill during a visit in July 2015, and would strongly recommend you make plans to visit the extraordinary home in Oyster Bay, NY.

Theodore Roosevelt was a passenger on the Narcissus on August 18, 1914. The Theodore Roosevelt Association, The Friends of Sagamore Hill and the National Park Service at Sagamore Hill NHS have all been very helpful and supportive to the Narcissus Project at Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, ME.

Theodore Roosevelt preserved more than 230 million acres for conservation. Click here to read more.
