Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

This program explores the history of the nation's first "first family," tracing George Washington's stepgrandchildren, the Custises, from childhood celebrities to carriers of the Washington legacy in nineteenth century America. Author Cassandra Good will discuss her book, First Family, sharing behind-the-scenes insights on reconstructing the story of this once-famous family.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5:30 pm ET on December 5.
