The Secrets Behind the Most Iconic Building in the World

Did you know that, rumor has it, the White House is filled with secret tunnels? These reported tunnels were most used by presidents like Kennedy to meet up with their many mistresses.

Stories embed in artwork. Perhaps secret tunnels underneath. An empty pool and a desk that might have cost the lives of dozens- what secrets does the White House hold? For more than two centuries, the President's manor has stood as a symbol of resilience, of democracy, of the American spirit. The Executive Mansion holds many tales, hundreds of them, since John Adams first made it his home. The off-gray house, not white, but crafted from locally sourced sandstone, has a very interesting history. Join us as we explore some of its history, some of the history of the figures that called it their home, and some of its behind-the-scenes chicanery. The White House has been the background of thousands of passion plays- get the gist behind some of those secrets.

"I was a staff member, serving in the West Wing during the last administration. For 4 years I called the White House my home. And I didn't even know half the things this tour exposed me to. That says a lot."
