Volunteer Patch

In its daily operations and in special projects, Sagamore Hill consistently seeks input and support from the surrounding community and from the public at large.

We have a fairly large base of volunteers who help us with maintenance projects, lead tours of the Roosevelt Home, staff the museum, scan photos and documents, input data through computer programs, etc.

An artist's impression of Theodore Roosevelt's funeral at Christ Church in Oyster Bay, NY.

Theodore Roosevelt died around 4 o'clock in the morning January 6, 1919 when he was sixty years old. Many dignitaries attended Roosevelt's funeral including Vice-president Thomas Marshall who said that "Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake, there would have been a fight."
