    Intended as a retreat for Eleanor Roosevelt, the property was named Val-Kill, Dutch for “waterfall” and “stream” and includes a Dutch Colonial house designed by Henry Tombs and completed in 1925.

    This is very different than the Roosevelt mansion on Rt. 9. In order to get a more complete understanding of Franklin & Eleanor, you need to tour both locations.
