Newly Installed Mantel in the State Dining Room

This photograph of the newly-installed mantel in the State Dining Room was taken by Abbie Rowe on July 2, 1962. The mantel was a gift of both the architecture firm Steinmann, Cain & White and the Marble Industry Board of New York. The new mantel was installed as part of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's restoration program. The State Dining Room is located on the State Floor of the White House. The room is often the setting for state or official dinners and is the second largest room in the White House.
