A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL

The original site of the Easter Monday Egg Roll was the grounds of the United States Capitol. By the mid-1870s, the egg rolling activities on the West Terraces had gained notoriety as the children turned the Capitol grounds into their Easter Monday playground. The first egg rolls, largely family affairs, seem to have been held during the administration of President Andrew Johnson. Youngsters of the President's family dyed eggs on Sunday for the Monday rolling, which the First Lady would watch from the South Portico. The workers and tourists watched in fascination as the children rolled both their hard boiled eggs and themselves down the lush green hills.

The egg roll activity of 1876 took its toll on the grounds, a fact that did not go unnoticed by members of Congress. With an already inadequate budget to complete the landscaping and maintenance of the grounds, Congress passed a law forbidding the Capitol grounds to be used as a children's playground. The law was to be enforced in 1877. But that Easter Monday rain poured down, canceling any outdoor activities sending the egg rollers indoors to play.

On Easter Saturday of 1878, a small announcement in the local press informed the egg rollers the new law would be enforced. President Rutherford B. Hayes, taking his daily walk, was approached by a number of young egg rollers who inquired about the possibilities of egg rolling on the South Lawn of the White House. President Hayes, upon his return to the White House, issued an official order that should any children arrive to egg roll on Easter Monday, they were to be allowed to do so. That Monday, as children were being turned away from the Capitol grounds, word quickly spread to go to the White House!

President Hayes and his wife, Lucy, officially opened the White House grounds to the children of the area for egg rolling that Easter Monday. Successive Presidents continued the tradition, and the event has been held on the South Lawn ever since.

White House The Red Room


THE ROOMS OF THE WHITE HOUSE COLLECTION

The Red Room

The Red Room traditionally has served as a parlor or sitting room; recent Presidents have had small dinner parties here. During the Madison administration, the room became Dolley Madison's famous salon. A sunflower yellow, not red, dominated the room's décor. During John Tyler's administration, this room became the "Washington Parlor," when the large Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington, now in the East Room, was displayed here at that time. Yellow dominated the color scheme until 1845, when President and Mrs. Polk furnished the room with a dark crimson French Antique style suite and a ruby carpet. Soon the "Washington Parlor" became the "Red Room." The Rooms of the White House Ornament Collection from the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 are architecturally correct interior dioramas of the White House Rooms. These exceptional collectibles and gifts are handcrafted in Rhode Island, USA, by the official ornament makers, are completely finished in 24KT gold on premium brass with exquisitely baked enamels, and include an informational history card for each piece in this exceptional new White House Collection. The White House Rooms available include the Oval Office, the State Dining Room, the Blue Room, the Green Room, the Red Room, and the East Room with many more rooms to come!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL

In 1791, President Washington chose the land, now the District of Columbia, as the nation’s capital. Pierre Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer, was charged to plan the new city of Washington. L'Enfant's eye was keen, for he envisioned the U.S. Capitol Building upon the brow of what was then called Jenkins' Hill -- a site that in L'Enfant's words, "A pedestal waiting for a monument." The Capitol Building, itself, was designed by Dr. William Thornton, a Scottish-trained physician. The Capitol’s length, north to south, is 751 feet 4 inches; width is 350 feet; height to the top of the Statue of Freedom is 288 feet; the dome is an elegant articulation of 8,909,200 pounds of cast iron!

Standing atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., construction of the U.S. Capitol Building began in 1793, and is the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government -- the Congress of the United States. On September 18, 1793, President Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol building-- an exemplar 19th-century neoclassical architecture that evokes the principles and ideals guiding the Founding Fathers as they developed the new republic. Congress first met in the Capitol Building on November 17, 1800

The United States Capitol building is symbolically and architecturally one of the most important architectures not only in America but also in the world. Often shown as a symbol of power, influence, authority, and gravity in times of national crises as the background of news broadcasts -- the United States Capitol building is synonymous with the legislative pulse of America. The Senate and the House of Representatives have forged the laws of our Nation in the great halls, corridors, and private rooms of the Capitol Building for more than two centuries. The Capitol building since 1793 was built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored, and stands as an architectural monument of freedom and democracy for America.
