You might end up with more questions than answers after this tour! We'll give you the need to know; like why was Dolley Madison's house named the second White House and why was Harriet Lane the first women with the title "First Lady." From stories of America's most beloved ladies overcoming breast cancer, media scrutiny, and unfaithful husbands, we'll explore how the women in the White House are the definition of persistence and perseverance. Their personal experiences are as important as their milestones in American history; like Helen Taft's cherry blossom trees, Jackie Kennedy's preservation of Lafayette Park, and the one moment in history when 7 living first ladies came together in real life to dedicate a memorial to honor the legacy of this unpaid and often under-appreciated position. Walk with us past DC's fanciest hotels and iconic Pennsylvania Avenue and attach yourself to the stories of our first ladies, not often recognized with physical monuments but ingrained in the fabric of our city and history.
