The FDR Library and Museum at Hyde Park NY - Daniel Beards

View of the Summer White House in Hyde Park NY

Roosevelt was born in what was then the master bedroom on second floor tower at the south end of the house, nearby his childhood bedroom. After marrying Eleanor Roosevelt in 1905, the young couple moved in with his mother, Sarah. In 1915, they hired the Hoppin and Koen to remodel the home, doubling it in size with two large fieldstone wings (designed by FDR), a tower, and a third storey with a flat roof. Restyled in Colonial Revival, the clapboard exterior was replaced with stucco and most of the porch was replaced with a fieldstone terrace with a balustrade and a small columned portico
