  • This photograph of the White House Entrance Hall was taken in 2003. A prominent feature in the entryway, located just inside the North Portico, is the pier table shown here. The table is part of the Bellange suite of furniture that President James Monroe purchased in Paris and brought with him to the White House when he became president. Of the original 53 piece set, it is the only known item to remain continuously in the White House. The pier table is believed to have been built around 1817.

  • This oil on canvas painting was created by Gordon Phillips in 1966. It depicts First Lady Abigail Adams and her granddaughter, Susanna, watching a servant hang laundry in the unfinished East Room. When President John Adams and his family moved into the White House in 1800, many of the rooms and hallways were incomplete. The East Room could not be used as a place to host receptions, so Mrs. Adams used it to dry laundry. Susanna was the daughter of Charles Adams, the President and First Lady's second son and younger brother to future president John Quincy Adams.
