About the Blog

Welcome to the whitehousehistory.org blog.

With regular posts from the Association staff and guest bloggers, we hope we’ll inspire and inform you and promote the enjoyment and appreciation of White House history.

Visit the blog regularly and learn more about ongoing research, publications, educational programs, and events for students, teachers, scholars, and the general public about the history of the White House and the President’s Neighborhood. The blog will have regular updates on the activities and programs at the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History at Decatur House, a research and educational institute founded in 2010 and housed at a National Trust for Historic Preservation site.

The center’s future plans include a digital library, which will offer unparalleled opportunities for online research and distance learning; lecture programs for public audiences and scholarly symposia for academic audiences; tours for the general public on a scheduled basis; and open houses and family days on focused themes.

If you have any comments, suggestions or ideas about the blog, please send an email to webmaster@whha.org
