Sagamore Hill | President Theodore Roosevelt Oyster Bay Home in Long Island

Long Island Oyster Bay Sagamore Hill

Some people move to Oyster Bay for the quiet. Some move here to be near the seashore. And others for the history. In fact, historic homes for sale in Oyster Bay are popular.  And often disappear from the local housing market as quickly as they enter. However, one historic home sure to remain an icon in the Oyster Bay community is Sagamore Hill, the former home of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States.

Sagamore Hill is a national treasure waiting to be explored and enjoyed. Congress established it as the Sagamore National Historic Site to preserve the house as a part of the National Park Service.  It was soon after listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The house is a must-see for Nassau County residents and visitors and is a source of pride for the community.

Our REALTORS® are excited to tell you about the history of Sagamore Hill and Oyster Bay and can't wait to show you homes for sale in Long Island.

History Unfolds at Sagamore Hill

Oyster Bay Sagamore Hill

When you step onto the grounds of Sagamore Hill, it's easy to leave your everyday life behind as history begins to unfold around you. The home itself is the centerpiece of the estate, having been the residence of Theodore Roosevelt from 1885 until the former President's death in 1919. While he was in office, Roosevelt's "Summer White House" was the site of several peace talks and visits from foreign dignitaries.

An Inside Look at Roosevelt's Legacy

Touring Sagamore Hill gives you a glimpse into the life of Theodore Roosevelt, the acclaimed political figure and the charismatic man. One of the highlights of the tour, the North Room showcases many of Roosevelt's prized trophy heads, animal skin rugs and gifts presented to him by various heads of state. You'll also find a collection of thousands of books and a diverse assortment of art acquired by Roosevelt throughout the home. The Queen Anne style home still has original furnishings and decor in its 23 rooms and underwent a meticulous renovation a few short years ago. Guided tours of Sagamore Hill are available for a small admission fee; you'll want to stop by the visitor center and bookstore during your visit.

Explore the Grounds

Sagamore Hill Historic Site includes not only the home but 83 acres of countryside once enjoyed by the Roosevelt family. Take advantage of the property's trails and picnic areas to relax and explore the salt marsh, beach, forest and meadows with your family. Part of the National Park Service, Sagamore Hill provides a tranquil setting for the outdoor enthusiast combined with the rich history of one of our country's most celebrated leaders. You can visit the park year round from sunrise to sunset.

The Oyster Bay area of Long Island is both charming and steeped in history, and Sagamore Hill is a shining example of both. You can visit President Roosevelt's Sagamore Hills home at 12 Sagamore Hill Road in Oyster Bay, New York.
