White House Gingerbread House

This is a photograph of the White House gingerbread house taken on December 20, 1999, by White House photographer William Vasta. Executive Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier and his team created gingerbread versions of the White House, the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, and Mount Vernon. The scene also included the Potomac river winding through the display. The theme chosen for 1999 was "Saving America's Treasures," highlighting the First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's program to help preserve important landmarks and historic artifacts.
