“resting place of America's 26th president”
When the season is right and the great maples have lost some leaves, you can stand beside Theodore Roosevelt’s grave, high on a hill, and look out on the glittering waters of Oyster Bay. It is easy at those times to imagine T.R. in his rowboat. T.R. loved to go rowing in Oyster Bay, first as a boy, then as a man. If he had to fight a strong southerly on the way home, all the better; he relished the exertion. Theodore Roosevelt—rancher, soldier, father and president—finally rested on January 6, 1919. Two days later he was buried at Youngs Memorial Cemetery, just down the road from his longtime home, Sagamore Hill.
