"All that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River" FDR This quote captures FDR's connection to Springwood in Hyde Park, the estate that he loved & the place he considered home. The first US Presidential Library was started by FDR here. Visit the Home of FDR and Presidential Library & Museum to learn about the only President elected to four terms. Tours of the FDR Home have an outdoor component. The walk to the Home from the Visitor Center is 1/4 mile long in one direction - all on level ground.
