Franklin Delano Roosevelt
|FDR, is buried in
the rose garden at the Franklin Roosevelt Library and Museum in Hyde Park,
My girlfriend, Peggy, her daughter, LeAnne, and I went to my brother's house in April 2004 for a massive Eastern New York / Hudson Valley Presidential, Vice - Presidential, and Presidential opponent tour. On April 17, we (the three of us, plus my brother and nephew, Jeff) visited three presidential graves, two vice-president's (not included 2 that also served as President) and one Presidential opponent grave.
FDR's place is really easy to find in Hyde Park. There are signs all over the place. He is down the street from the Frederick W. Vanderbilt Mansion.
The complex has a new visitor's center, and we paid the money and toured the house.
To get a better picture of me at the grave, Peggy talked me into jumping the little barrier and running up close to the headstone to get my picture. It was the second time I had to jump a fence to get close to a gravesite. (The first time was Frank's cousin's grave, Teddy.)
