Death in the White House

Death in the White House: A Nation Mourns
at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site
Special Exhibit
April 3 - December 31, 2015

Since John and Abigail Adams first entered it in 1800, the White
House has been home to familiar people who we love to call our
own. We know the first family's personalities, their quirks, the
children and grandchildren. And yet, eight presidents and three
first ladies have passed in the White House, causing us to also
share in their grief. This special exhibit spans two centuries of
the lives--and deaths--of some of the country's most beloved,
controversial and, ultimately, mourned individuals.
