2nd Annual Big Block of Cheese Day
The White House has a long history of opening its doors — digital or otherwise. Even cast members from the West Wing got in on the fun making a promo video.
After President Thomas Jefferson’s 1805 swearing-in ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, guests followed him home, forming one of our country’s earliest inaugural parades in the process.
The Lincoln White House’s stairways and halls were constantly packed with members of the public. Sometimes, they climbed through windows to get in.
And President Andrew Jackson — as the White House’s digital platforms have now immortalized — had a 1,400-pound block of cheese in the main foyer of the White House for an open house event with thousands of citizens and staff. Anyone could take a bite.
We’re here to let you know that level of access hasn’t fundamentally changed. It just looks a little bit different now.
