Roosevelt Farm Lane Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Our nation’s only four-term president left us this uncommonly lovely woodland, as well as the carriage roads that bring us to its verdant heart. If you weren’t around during the Great Depression or World War II, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s name may be no more to you than one in a list of forty-odd presidents of the United States. For history enthusiasts and those who lived during his four-term presidency, however, the list of Roosevelt’s accomplishments extends well beyond the pages of any textbook—and one of the least known of these is his devotion to conservation, well before the environment became a fashionable cause."
