A not-for-profit Cooperating Association based in Hyde Park established to support the historic sites’ programs and projects through the sales of interpretive and educational materials. It operates bookstores at Vanderbilt Mansion and Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Sites.
A local not-for-profit organization of volunteers founded in 1984 to restore and maintain the three-acre Formal Gardens at the Vanderbilt Mansion.
The Conservancy works to reinvigorate and restore the historic gardens, landscapes and forests; to protect the Hudson River viewshed; and to interpret these places for visitors so that they may be inspired by the Roosevelts and their legacy. The Conservancy aims to attract new park visitors to stimulate the economic health of the communities nearby, and to discover the history made here. More broadly the Conservancy promotes the ideals and values of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Their legacy lives on in this historic place. The Roosevelt-Vanderbilt Conservancy works to ensure it can be experienced and shared in perpetuity.
Established in 1996, its scope is the entire river valley from Waterford to New York City. The heritage area is managed by the NY State Greenway. Headquarters are in Albany.
