Accessing the Digital Library
The Library holds thousands of images of the White House covering its entire history, including exterior views from different eras, images of rooms and furnishings throughout time, and photos of events including inaugurations and holiday celebrations. In support of the Association’s educational mission, each image is accompanied by carefully documented historical information provided free to the public in an easy to use format. As a registered user, you can create and save albums, share images on social media, and access small images for download.
The White House Historical Association is pleased to offer a subscription program to its Digital Library. The Digital Library contains thousands of well-researched photographs, artwork, documents, and other materials covering the history of the White House since 1799.
