The David M. Rubenstein Center for White House History is the hub of multi-platform, world-class research and education at the White House Historical Association, the organization charged with enhancing public understanding of the White House as a historical institution.

For more than 200 years, the White House has been more than just the home of the Presidents and their families. Throughout the world, it is recognized as the symbol of the United States and of executive power in the country. The White House Historical Association contributes to the preservation of the White House’s public rooms, preserves significant artifacts associated with the building, and designs a comprehensive set of research and educational programs for learners of all ages.

To increase the reach of its historical work, the White House Historical Association established the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History at Decatur House in 2010. The Center provides ongoing educational programs for students, teachers, scholars, and the general public through the White House History Teacher Institute, a quarterly annual lecture series, scheduled tours and open houses, a digital library, and more.
