Eleanor's Hideaway
Approximately two miles from FDR's home of Springwood on the Hyde Park Estate, Val-Kill was the home of Eleanor Roosevelt from 1945 to 1962 and remains as she left it. A visit includes an introductory film and a guided tour of Val-Kill Cottage and Stone Cottage, where she hosted family and friends, including John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill, and many others. Though intimate and simple, this was the place where she cemented her legacy as a champion of human rights, social justice, humanitarianism, and world peace.
