534. Eager

534. Eager
Definition: (adj) avid, keen, zealous
Location Placed: Val-Kill House, Hyde Park, New York

My last stop of the adventure was to Eleanor Roosevelt National Site, housing her home, Val-Kill. Val-Kill, which is Dutch for Valley Stream, was the only place Eleanor Roosevelt felt at home. Although not all the items in the house were original to Eleanor, the home was put back together in the manner her relatives remember it to look like. It definitely had a homey feel, more so than Franklin Roosevelt's home. I can see why Eleanor enjoyed this home and lived in it after FDR's passing. It was a lovely tour, and I appreciated knowing more about Eleanor and her life's work.
