Without any doubt, the most public of all private residences in the world is the White House. The home of the United States President and family, the White House remains the most private and secure home in the world because of its need to protect the leader of the US. Built in 1792, it has been the home to the leader of the free world and has housed countless events and guests in its ornate halls and rooms. Because of current events, all tours of the West Wing have been stopped for the sake of safety and privacy. This makes the following 20 photos, some of the rarest from the White House.
The President makes his entrance into the White House from the North Portico. This area and entrance were added in 1830 and deemed the official entry point for the President and guests. The entrance features a covered exterior complete with Tiffany glass windows. This is truly where the staff roll out of the red carpet for the President and friends.
The Jaqueline Kennedy Garden is located on the south side of the White House. It was established in honor of the first lady to John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States who was assassinated in Dallas in 1963. The garden features an exquisite fountain and plants against a remarkable and lush green landscape.
The White House outdoor swimming pool and adjoining cabana was built in 1975 by the 38th President of the United States, Gerald R. Ford. An avid swimmer, Ford wanted a simple pool where he could relax and wash away the stresses of leading the country. The adjoining cabana reflects the White House design with white walls, sky lights and expansive windows.
