The State Parlor
ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION
First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy envisioned a restored White House that conveyed a sense of history through its decorative and fine arts. In 1961, the White House Historical Association was established to support her vision to preserve and share the Executive Mansion’s legacy for generations to come.
THE STATE PARLOR COLLECTION
Produced exclusively for The White House Historical Association by Halcyon Days, the State Parlor Collection is inspired by the distinctive elegance of the most formal of the White House rooms.
THE STATE FLOOR
Centrally located on the State Floor and used for official entertaining, intimate teas and gatherings, and the reception of diplomats, the Red Room, Blue Room and Green Room are distinguished by their richly coloured decor as well as by the fine quality of the historic furnishings that represent America’s federal and ‘Empire’ periods.
THE ASSOCIATION'S MISSION
Supported entirely by private resources, the Association’s mission is to assist in the preservation of the state and public rooms, fund acquisitions for the White House permanent collection, and educate the public on the history of the White House.
Since its founding, the White House Historical Association has contributed more than $50 million in fulfilment of its mission.
