Sagamore Hill was built by Theodore Roosevelt during 1884 and 1885 and remained his permanent home the rest of his life. After its completion, the young Roosevelt moved in with his sister, Anna, and his daughter, Alice. His first wife, Alice Lee, had died only hours after their daughter was born. In December 1886 Roosevelt married Edith Kermit Carow, a childhood friend. The following spring they arrived at Sagamore Hill, and here, except for absences inposed by his public career, the Roosevelts spent the rest of their lives. Here to the “Summer White House” came national and international figures from every walk of life. Here Roosevelt died at the age of 60: and here Edith Roosevelt lived until her death in 1948 at the age of 87. Named after the Indian chief Sagamore Mohannis.
