Inside the White House Grounds: Patios, Porches, Porticoes & Outdoor Spaces

An Historical Gallery of the White House Grounds & Other Presidential Retreats

By

Much has been documented about the interior of the White House, but what about the exterior? The White House grounds, groves, outdoor living spaces and extensive plantings encompass the oldest continually maintained landscape in the United States. With a residence that large, it must have an amazing yard, with lots of patios, terraces, porches, pools and private retreats the average person knows nothing about. Take an historical tour of the White House's outdoor living spaces -- the places where the president and first lady might enjoy a quiet lunch outside, or where president's children can just be kids.
