Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Hyde Park, 4097 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park, NY 12538

Franklin D. Roosevelt shared his home, Springwood at Hyde Park, with kings, queens, presidents and prime ministers. This famous Hudson River Valley estate today serves as the site of a stunning display of United States flag that would have impressed FDR’s important guests.

It is especially fitting that the formation of flags will welcome guests to Springwood during the days leading up to and including Memorial Day. This posting of the Stars and Stripes will draw area residents and visitors together in a dramatic fashion to honor veterans, first responders and local heroes who through their service and sacrifice have given added meaning to the flag.

At the close of the event, sponsors will retain the flags they dedicated to honor individuals. The funds raised through the Field of Honor® flag display will benefit the Hyde Park Education Foundation in supporting programs that encourage and improve educational opportunities for students of the Hyde Park Central School District.

This is an experience made possible by the dedicated efforts of organizers and volunteers. Please support this worthwhile event by sponsoring flags in tribute to your heroes, by volunteering to help and through contributions.

The Field of Honor® display may be visited without charge; bring families and friends. This is an experience hard to describe but not to be forgotten. Don’t miss it.
