Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center


Welcome to Hyde Park, the heart of the Hudson Valley, and gateway to the region’s Great Estates.
For history buffs, Hyde Park has Colonial cottages, Gilded Age manors, such as the Vanderbilt’s Estate and Staatsburgh Historic Site. The Presidential Library of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his home, Springwood, as well as Eleanor Roosevelt’s cottage, Val-kill will fill your day.
Visitors to The Culinary Institute of America will savor our cafés and restaurants as well.
Nature lovers can trek our miles of trails, crisscrossed by ancient stone walls, or simply stroll along the majestic Hudson River.
The gardens of Hyde Park, whether large or small will delight your senses, from the Italian Gardens at the Vanderbilt’s, Beatrix Farrand’s garden at Bellefield to the Rose garden at Springwood.

The pastoral beauty of Hyde Park has inspired painters, poets and even politicians. Let it inspire you to return.
