Digital Library

Welcome to the White House Historical Association Digital Library! The Library holds thousands of images of the White House covering its entire history, including exterior views, images of rooms and furnishings, 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. The Digital Library was made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

The Digital Library is supported through a partnership with Amazon Web Services.
