Fodor's Expert Review Martin Van Buren National Historic Site

Hudson Historic District/Site

Born in Kinderhook, Martin Van Buren (1782–1862)—the eighth president of the United States—decided to retire to this estate, which he purchased during his presidency and called Lindenwald. Built in the Federal style in 1797, the house took on Gothic and Italianate features following a revamp in the mid-1800s. The graceful building can only be visited as part of a guided tour.
