As a nonprofit organisation, we are committed to the restoration and conservation of the F. W. Vanderbilt National Historic Site in Hyde Park, NY. Constructed by a grandchild of the notorious Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, it is a fine example of the early twentieth cent. lifestyles of the wealthy and notorious.
Located on the shores of the gorgeous Hudson River Valley in New York, it also offers a stunning view of one of the most important places in U.S. aviation heritage. Most of the farms at that time had a large, informal gardens in common. 2. An enthusiastic grower himself, Frederick Vanderbilt built an terraced orchard in Italy with many species of rose, annual and perennial plants.
In 1938, after his demise, the property was finally transferred to the German Confederation thanks to the interventions of President Franklin Roosevelt. The land, landscape design and building were maintained, but there was no funding for the maintenance of the garden. In the 1980s, the parks were a weak reminder. They teamed up in 1984 with National Park Service approval to planted some of the one-year-old bed-loss.
The FWVGA team has since expanded to over 100 and has collected well over 207,000 hrs of funding, researched, planted and heeled the garden's flora and wells. Famous for its verdant T-shirts and its untiring dedication to its work, the FWVGA has returned home to a backyard that was once considered irreparable.
