The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park was the first of its kind instituted in the US, established in 1939 while FDR was still in office. The complex of buildings including the Roosevelt family home has been tinkered with many times since then, of course, and the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center was added in 2003. But until just recently, the Library itself had not undergone a major renovation since 1972, when two wings were added in honor of Eleanor Roosevelt, ten years after her death.
