The White House: Inside Story It is one of America's most iconic buildings – a symbol of shared national history, and home to the most powerful person on Earth. Here in the White House, the President charts the course for the country, and the First Family lives in the spotlight. It's home, office, and museum… a bunker in times of war, a backdrop for command performances or state visits, and the heart of the American body politic. Its gleam and splendor are maintained by more than a hundred members of the residence staff and a bevy of curators. And its collection of antiques and artwork, dating back to the earliest presidencies, have turned this mansion into a showplace for American art and design.
