Save America's Treasures

 
In 1998 First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton created Save American's Treasure's, a public private partnership with the goal to safeguard America's cultural and historic heritage. First Lady Laura Bush is now the Honorary Chair and Richard Moe, President of the National Trust, and Susan Eisenhower, noted author and granddaughter of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, are co-chairs.
 
Honoring Eleanor Roosevelt: A Project to Preserve Her Val-Kill Home is a priority project of Save America's Treasures. Founded in 1998, Save America's Treasures operates as a partnership between the National Park Service (NPS), the country's major cultural agencies and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Honoring Eleanor Roosevelt promotes the legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt by restoring and preserving Eleanor Roosevelt's beloved home at Val-Kill in Hyde Park, New York, the only National Historic site dedicated to an American First Lady, and by enhancing the visitor's experience at the site. We do this in partnership with the National Park Service.
 
With its Park Service partners, Honoring Eleanor Roosevelt also is developing interactive exhibits and films that enable visitors to grasp and fully appreciate Eleanor Roosevelt's impact on generations of Americans.
 
The organization is run on a volunteer basis and is currently chaired by Carol Hillman. Honoring Eleanor Roosevelt is supported by generous contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations.
