Visitors Tour the White House, 1890s

The East Room draws tourists in the 1890s, during the second Cleveland administration, to admire the "New Grecian" decorations that had been added by President Grant in 1873. In the 19th century, the East Room became one of the most famous rooms in the United States and was a mecca for visitors to the capital.
