  • Tours Begin Monday May 19, 2014.

    Several recent publications have incorrectly indicated that tours resume the weekend of April 19 & 20. The park grounds are open year round from 7:00am to sunset, but tours will not resume until Monday May 19.

Lindenwald is a classroom full of lessons about antebellum America and one of the nation’s keenest political minds.

While planning for your classroom, please consider the resources available at Martin Van Buren National Historic Site. Naturally, there is the home of President Van Buren to explore and through which students can gain insight into antebellum America. Also, two exciting educational programs have been developed and tested by the park staff which are designed to be offered at your school.
