U.S. #1023 honors Theodore Roosevelt’s home, Sagamore Hill. Roosevelt built Sagamore Hill as his home in 1884. He died there January 6, 1919.
 
Theodore Roosevelt’s Sagamore Hill
Growing up in New York City, Theodore Roosevelt spent many summers and vacations with his family in the Oyster Bay area in Cove Neck on Long Island. In 1880, Roosevelt bought 155 acres of land on Cove Neck, near Oyster Bay, for $300,000. Four years later, he hired an architect to design a 22-room Queen Anne home. In 1905, Roosevelt added the “North Room”, the largest in the house.
 
Roosevelt and his wife Edith made Sagamore Hill their home for the rest of their lives. In fact, it became famously known as the “Summer White House” for the seven summers President Roosevelt spent there during his term. 
 
Theodore Roosevelt died there in 1919 and was buried just one mile away. The house was opened as a museum in 1953 and established a National Historic Site in 1962.
