FDR born in master bed room in 1882. House enlarged for his 6 children in 1915. Mansion still has original furniture of 1945, including the elevator the crippled President pulled up by ropes, since he did not trust electricity.

The home and displays were so much more impressive because of the thorough knowledge and appreciation exhibited by the National Park Service guide. Seeing FDR's home made it easy to understand why he became such a great president.

This tour is well managed. Look closely, there is so much to see. The guides are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about explaining things. There are stairs to the second floor that some may not be able to manage.

We are planning for next May, coming from Chicago on Amtrak. Does the shuttle run from Poughkeepsie only one a day as the FDR site seems to imply, or is it more often?

The whole house is open. Most rooms are viewed from the doorway and the Park Rangers are amazingly knowledgeable and give lots of information .
