Introducing the White House Facebook Timeline

We’re pleased to introduce the White House timeline, which highlights moments from our more than 200-year history.

We're excited to introduce the White House’s Facebook timeline, which highlights special moments from our rich history, dating back more than 200 years. Explore the inaugurations of our forty-four Presidents and peek inside life at the White House, from FDR’s first “fireside chat” to the first White House website, created in 1994. You can also see photos featuring famous visits and even first pets.

We plan to update our timeline frequently, adding more historical photos and including milestones ranging from the first cornerstone being laid through events happening in the present. Be sure to "like" the White House on facebook for the latest news and a glimpse into history. Take a look around and let us know what you think. 

So, what’s your favorite White House historical photo or interesting fact? Join us in celebrating the dynamic and colorful history of the White House, and share your thoughts with us on FacebookGoogle+ or on Twitter with the hashtag #WhiteHousefb.

We look forward to hearing from you!
