The White House Historical Association announced today the redesign of its primary website WhiteHouseHistory.org. The new site makes the rich and varied content authored by the Association over the past fifty-four years more accessible through search to users and creates a highly visual experience for visitors of all ages.
From White House trivia to scholarly articles, the site reflects robust content on the history of the White House written and compiled by the Association. Visitors to the site will find the new design responsive to their device, whether mobile, tablet, or desktop, and new features and content will be added to the site on an ongoing basis.
Creating easier access to the vast amount of content the Association has created and authored is an important part of fulfilling the Association’s mission to provide public access to the rich history of the Executive Mansion. In the coming months, the Association will continue to add additional historical content and images to the site, expand interactive offerings, and launch a new digital library.
The site, developed in collaboration with Viget Labs, a full-service interactive agency headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia marks a significant upgrade in the Association’s digital offerings. The Association continues to operate its ecommerce platform as well at Shop.WhiteHouseHistory.org.
About the white house historical association
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. Supported entirely by private resources, the Association’s mission is to assist in the preservation of the state and public rooms, fund acquisitions for the White House permanent collection, and educate the public on the history of the White House. Since its founding, the Association has given more than $50 million to the White House in fulfillment of its mission.
