December 10, 2015 - Annual Volunteer Holiday Celebration
Volunteers, Staff and Friends are invited.
The Friends of Sagamore Hill either host or participate in many of the activities at the site, which are designed to keep alive the spirit of Theodore Roosevelt. An objective of the organization is to explore and develop meaningful ways to work with the National Park Service to serve the visitors to the site, while preserving the integrity of our American heritage. Also included is dual membership in the prestigious Theodore Roosevelt Association (TRA). The Friends of Sagamore Hill operates as a Chapter of the TRA, with the preservation of Sagamore Hill National Historic Site as its primary purpose. While joining has many advantages, the best is the satisfaction you will receive knowing that you are helping preserve a part of America's great history for your children and grandchildren.
On the eve of his unexpected death, Theodore Roosevelt told his wife,
"I wonder if you will ever know how I love Sagamore Hill."
Generations later, visitors to Sagamore Hill National Historic Site continue to "fall in love" with his home.
