  • This photograph shows the Lincoln Bedroom as it appeared in September 1962. Located on the Second Floor of the White House, in modern times the Lincoln Bedroom is used for official and personal guests of the president’s family. In the past, it served as an office and Cabinet room. The room became a bedroom in the family quarters during the 1902 Roosevelt renovation. The high-back bed, known as the Lincoln Bed, was purchased for the White House by First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln. While it was purchased during the Lincoln administration, the bed was probably never used by President Abraham Lincoln, nor was it originally placed in this room. Repurposed during the administration of President Harry S. Truman, the room features furniture, artwork, and refurbishing reminiscent of the 1860s. Under the direction of First Lady Laura Bush, the room underwent refurbishing to enhance its historical accuracy. Aided by the White House Historical Association, this project was complete in 2005.
