September 25, 2021 – Martin Van Buren National Historic Site – New York

Yesterday Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Martin Van Buren National Historic Site in Kinderhook, New York. The Martin Van Buren Historic Site preserves the Lindenwald Estate, and the mansion of the eight president of the United States, Martin Van Buren. Tours are available of the home, and nature trails surround the property. Pets are not allowed in the home, and are allowed on the Whipple Loop Trail only.

We had a historic Adventure to the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site. I was excited to find this location, planning our day around the Taconic Sculpture Park. We arrived to find the outdoor visitor center and were directed toward the Whipple Loop Trail. For those visiting with dogs, this trail pretty much gives you full access to the property. We headed off on the loop, stopping at the various landmarks along the way. It was a beautiful day, but still a little warm so we appreciated the shade. The grass was bright green, and the trees lovely, centered by the mansion of Martin Van Buren. We walked and took our time on this Site. Gus loved finding sticks, while Wilma appreciated more grassy rolls. Except for the nearby highway it was a very quiet and peaceful location. So glad we could visit the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site (Rating: 4).
