Manufacturer Description

With Hyde Park on the Hudson, Margaret Logan Marquez chronicles the town’s fascinating history from 1821 to 1962. Gathered from many local archives, including the Piersaull Collection, the rare and previously unpublished images presented here transport us to the past. We see farmers and their
families, wealthy estate owners, ice boating on the
river, and local churches, businesses, and schools.
Through this exciting pictorial history, we experience the golden era of the region, when the
popular and the powerful seemed to be playing the
same tune. The outstanding example of this social
harmony was the Roosevelt family, who turned this
way of living into a national goal and a world dream.
The revival of Dutch Colonial architecture brought about by President Roosevelt, the restoration of the Italian gardens at Vanderbilt, and the recent volunteer efforts to restore the stonewalls along the
Post Road, are testimonies to a past that is still living.
