Entrance Hall, Nixon Administration

This photograph of the Entrance Hall was taken in August 1973 during the administration of Richard M. Nixon. Located on the State Floor of the White House, the Entrance Hall welcomes visitors arriving through the North Portico to the Executive Mansion. The Presidential Seal is embedded in the wall, located just above the entrance to the Blue Room. On the floor, between the central columns, are bronze stars that commemorate the Roosevelt and Truman renovations in 1902 and 1948-1952. In this photograph, the Cross Hall, identified by its red carpeting, and the adjoining Green, Blue, and Red Rooms are visible in the background.
