The White House As A Museum Walk is an interactive walk and talk with an historical figure (a costumed interpreter) who actually worked at the White House and is intimately familiar with the stories told by the house’s varied furnishings and objects on display. The particular museum objects on which this walk focuses are the White House gardens of the past. They have so many stories to tell about life during different presidential administrations. John Ousley, the first White House gardener, takes a break from his duties and introduces walk guests to White House landscapes and gardens from 1825 to 1852. As guests stroll the president’s neighborhood, Mr. Ouslsy helps them understand the importance of gardens during the nation’s early years.

 Please Note: The walk does not go into the White House or onto the White House grounds.

 

John Ousley was the first official White House gardener. He was hired in 1825 by President John Quincy Adams (6th U.S. President) and replaced in 1852 by President Millard Fillmore (13th U. S. President). With these years of service in hand Mr. Ousley is highly qualified to treat walk guests to a look at American history through the White House gardens. After all, objects tell stories! You cannot imagine how much it is possible to learn about people and their lives from treasured items such as chairs, carpets, artwork, dishes --- and gardens!

 For instance, do you know which U.S. presidents were farmers before they became president? Or which president wanted to create a forest of trees from around the world? What about the president who preferred gardening to governing? Or the one who planted that very special magnolia? What a story it tells! Well, do you know all the Latin names for local flowers, bushes and trees? The very poetic John Ousley knows the answer to all of these. He knows much about the early White House gardens and the U.S. presidents who loved or hated them.

 After the walk, you might enjoy a visit to the White House Visitor Center for more information about the White House as a museum.
