Val-Kill (aka Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site) was the place that Eleanor called home. Nothing fancy even though heads of state visited. Tucked in the woods, with a stream there is a sense of peace about it which must have been very welcomed respite from her extensive travelling. The introductory movie and tour is about an hour. The history of Val Kill is very interesting and I will not spoil it for you. Go and enjoy! There is a walking trail that takes you to FDR's place and library (about 2 miles) and then another 2 miles to the Vanderbilt Mansion.
