"All that is in me cries out to return to my home along the Hudson River," Franklin Roosevelt said near the end of his life. Springwood, the Roosevelt
Estate in Hyde Park, NY was a place where FDR's ideals, ambitions and character were shaped.

This virtual presentation, led by Education Specialist Jeffrey Urbin, will explore the magic the Hudson River Valley held for Franklin D. Roosevelt, and how it influenced his presidency. The presentation will also explore the role FDR had in shaping the Hudson Valley and, lastly, why a place is so important to who we are and who we become.
