White House Renovation, 1947-1952: The Red Room
Shortly after moving into the White House, President Harry S. Truman noticed the signs of a building under serious physical stress. Early in 1948, in response to the President’s concerns, engineering reports confirmed that the White House was in a serious state of disrepair.
Burned to the exterior walls in 1814, further compromised by the successive additions of indoor plumbing, gas lighting, electric wiring, heating ducts, and major modifications in 1902 and 1927, some said the White House was standing only from the force of habit.
The decision was made to move the Trumans across the street into the Blair House for three years while the White House underwent a complete reconstruction within its original exterior walls.
The Truman Library is documenting the renovation of the White House on HistoryPin. Take a tour through time with historic photos set against the contemporary setting of the Red Room. So cool!
