  • White House Stonemasons' Bankers-Marks
    James Mark
    Ground Floor
    This photograph captures bankers-marks found engraved on the sandstones of the White House walls. Bankers-marks were a stonemason tradition with origins in Scotland and England. The first stonemason hired for White House construction, Collen Williamson, was a Scot who likely continued to enforce this tradition while working on the Executive Mansion. Historically, the marks represented apprentices upon the completion of their training and were derived from the marks of their teachers. The marks on the White House stones were uncovered during President Harry S. Truman's renovation of the Executive Mansion from 1948-1952. President Truman gave a number of the stones to Masonic Lodges across the country while some remained in the White House. Several of these marks were displayed in two reconstructed fireplaces on the Ground Floor.
