Know More about this tour
In addition to serving the country as a museum and being the presidentâs office, the White House must serve as a home for the First Families. Since 1800 First Families have experienced their time in the White House very differently. Enter President Theodore Roosevelt, his wife Edith and six children ---- Alice, Ted, Kermit, Ethel, Archie and Quentin. Along with them came spirited spitballs hurled with perfect accuracy, a menagerie that would make a zookeeperâs head spin and a father who loved crazy antics with his children almost as much as they did!! The White House was, indeed, the Roosevelt Family's home!!
Quentin Roosevelt (a costumed character) will meet you and as you stroll the Presidentâs Neighborhood together, heâll share memories of his family's days in the White House. If you donât already know about them, Quentin will tell you all about the White House Gang, his group of friends that considered the attic of the White House their headquarters.
Â This is our favorite walk for families. Quentin is not much more that a child himself. And he arrives with wonderful stories peppered with childish enthusiasm.
The walk does not go into the White House or onto the White House grounds.Â After the walk, you may stop by the White House Visitor Center for more information about the White House as a home.Â
