Tour leader: Evan Phifer, White House Historical Association
Built in 1818, Decatur House has been home to foreign and American dignitaries, secretaries of state, members of Congress, and a vice president, in addition to numerous free and enslaved servants who played a pivotal role in shaping America. Decatur House is one of only a few remaining examples of slave quarters in an urban setting.
The White House Historical Association, founded by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in 1961, is a private non-profit educational organization with a mission to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the Executive Mansion.
The David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History, established in 2010 and located at historic Decatur House, offers programs that enhance the understanding of the Executive Mansion and stimulate a sense of history and pride in our country.
Please note: The group will travel by Metro (fare card provided); the house is a 5-minute walk from the Farragut North station. The first and second floor parlors are wheelchair accessible, but the house does include several stairways.
