FDR and Dutchess County Stone Buildings

Henry Toombs captured FDR's vision of Dutch colonial architecture so perfectly that he went on to collaborate with President Roosevelt on other ventures. His next commission came from the President's mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt. The fieldstone walls for that project, the James Roosevelt Memorial Library in Hyde Park, were included at the suggestion of President Roosevelt. Toombs would later go on to design structures for FDR with the similar fieldstone walls: the Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia; the Hyde Park retreat Top Cottage; and the initial designs for the Presidential Library.
