Celebrating our 27th Anniversary!
We are dedicated to preserving and protecting Theodore Roosevelt's home in Oyster Bay on Long Island.
The Friends of Sagamore Hill mourns the passing of one of America's greatest historians, David McCullough. He was a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. In 2006, he was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of the United States' highest civilian awards. Among his many great works of non-fiction was Mornings on Horseback, about the early years of Theodore Roosevelt.

‘Teddy’s Homecoming Jubilee’ was hosted by The Friends of Sagamore Hill and the Oyster Bay Main Street Association, in partnership with the Town of Oyster Bay. Famed Theodore Roosevelt Reprisor Joseph Wiegand arrived at the Oyster Bay stop on the Long Island Rail Road, from which he headed to the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum. He then was driven in an antique 1900s-era classic car, arriving at the bandstand to reenact President Roosevelt’s famous 1903 Independence Day speech.
“We are so pleased to partner with the Oyster Bay Main Street Association and The Friends of Sagamore Hill to welcome home our most famous resident, President Theodore Roosevelt,” said Town Clerk LaMarca.
Following the reenactment of the President’s speech, residents were invited to join President Roosevelt for a ‘meet and greet’ at Teddy’s Bully Bar on Audrey Avenue. The establishment offered signature cocktails celebrating President Roosevelt, with a portion of proceeds going to The Friends of Sagamore Hill.
