Kinderhook is most noteworthy for its native son, Martin Van Buren, the 8th President of the United States. Van Buren was born here on December 5, 1782 and began his road to the White House in 1821 after holding the public offices of New York State Senator, Governor and U.S. Senator. Van Buren was elected to be the 8th President of the United States in 1837 after serving as Secretary of State (1829) and Vice President (1832) in Andrew Jackson’s administration. He was one of only two men to serve as Vice President, Secretary of State, and President; the other is Thomas Jefferson. Van Buren was the first President to be born as an American citizen; previous Presidents were born prior to the American Revolution. President Van Buren was an accomplished politician but his presidency was characterized by the economic hardship of the time – the Panic of 1837.
This banking crisis occurred only 5 weeks into his presidency and tarnished his administration. He ran for re–election in 1844 and seemed to have the advantage for the nomination but his opposition to the annexation of Texas contributed to his defeat at the Democratic convention. The nomination eventually went to James Polk. Van Buren returned to his estate, Lindenwald, where he remained until his death in 1862 from bronchial asthma and heart failure at the age of 79.
