The White House Historical Association (WHHA) is charged with enhancing the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the White House as a residence, a piece of history, and an international symbol.

The WHHA produces educational literature and films, develops special programs, and maintains a website interpreting the White House, its history, and the persons and events associated with it. The WHHA supports the acquisition of artwork and objects for the White House collection and contributes to the conservation of public rooms.
