The Red Room: White House Video Tour

The Red Room is one of three state parlors named after a color, with the designated red dating back to 1845 during the James K. Polk administration. The room is largely filled with 1830s American "Empire" or "Grecian" style furniture, most of which was made in upstate New York. Join White House Historical Association historian Lina Mann as she shares the history of the Red Room this short video, made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring human endeavor.
