On January 1, 2010, the White House Historical Association established The David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History at Decatur House, a research and educational institute housed at a National Trust for Historic Preservation site. Currently, the center provides ongoing educational programs for students, teachers, scholars, and the general public on the history of the White House and the President's Neighborhood.  The center's future plans include a digital library, which will offer unparalleled opportunities for online research and distance learning; lecture programs for public audiences and scholarly symposia for academic audiences; tours for the general public on a scheduled basis; and open houses and family days on focused themes.
