The White House Historical Association
August 6, 2003 No Comments
It is one of the most visited houses in our country, if not the world. The occupant changes every few years, but the rent is right for those who live there – free! What place am I talking about? It is the home of the chief executive of our nation, the White House.
The White House Historical Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1961 for the purpose of enhancing the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of this national treasure. Here you can take a guided tour of the house, with your tour guide being none other that Andrew Jackson, seventh President and resident from 1829 to 1837. He enhances your tour activities with interesting topics and trivia about the White House. You will also meet other friends along the way, such as Johnny the Clockman (who keeps the 55 clocks working).
So stop on by and take a most interesting tour of this national monument. It is a great way to spend some quality internet time.
