  • Description

    Val-Kill is a National Historic Site dedicated to the life and achievements of Eleanor Roosevelt. It is the first and only National Historic Site commemorating a First Lady of the US.
    The Roosevelts’ made this place a home away from home, and it became a relaxing and entertainment site for friends as well as world leaders. In 1926, alongside three of her friends, Eleanor established the “Val-Kill Industries” – a skills training program and a handcraft workshop that provided employment for local families. Later on, Val-Kill Industries was the model for the New Deal recovery programs. After President FDR passed away in 1945, Val-Kill became Eleanor’s permanent place of residence.
    Visiting the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site will give you an insight into Eleanor Roosevelt’s both private and public life. Watch a short introductory film, then join a free guided tour through the main house, to view authentic photographs, artifacts, and furniture. Afterward, stroll in the gardens, visit the Val-Kill Industries workshop, and enjoy special events, such as Music in The Parks, Vanderbilt Garden Tours, and Christmas Open House.
