“The White House belongs to the American People.” – First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy envisioned a restored White House that conveyed a sense of history through its decorative and fine arts. She sought to inspire Americans, especially children, to explore and engage with American history and its presidents. In 1961, The White House Historical Association was established to support her vision to preserve and share the Executive Mansion’s legacy for generations to come.
