Celebrating the White House on its two hundredth anniversary, this special volume invites you to visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and to meet the people who live and work there. You will be entertained with amusing anecdotes about the residents, peek at rarely seen views of family life, and observe behind-the-scenes plans for gala weddings and milestone events. From the focal point of the Oval Office where Presidents make decisions impacting on the nation to the private living quarters of the First Family, Inside the White House introduces us to the fascinating history of these chambers, including top-level meeting rooms, press rooms, and even recreation areas. Upstairs and downstairs, the White House's period furnishings have long been a source of national pride. A special section highlights these antiques and treasures with firsthand descriptions of furniture, china, glassware, and the magnificent portraits of the Presidents and their First Ladies. As the hub for diverse activities, among them the observance of national holidays, rowdy demonstrations of protest, the presentation of honorary awards, and the welcoming of heads of state, the White House has been the scene of newsmaking events. In this fascinating volume, the lore, legends, and facts about the "People's House" are presented in a lively text which is illustrated by archival drawings and historic photographs.
