Roosevelt home to undergo 6.2 M Restoration

Theodore Roosevelt's home "Sagamore Hill" will undergo a 6.2 Million Dollar restoration beginning in 2012. The restoration will include interior restoration of the main house as well as updates to the mechanical systems. The interior work will consist of a new roof and gutters, foundation work and restoration of historic windows doors, sidings and porches to historic preservation standards.

There is still time to see the house in its pre restoration condition as  there will be tours conducted through December 4th of 2011. Other parts of the Sagamore Hill site will remain open during the restoration.
