The White House serves as the home to the current sitting president, but it is more than just a house.
Here are a few weird things about the home you may not know.????According to the White House Historical Association, until Theodore Roosevelt was president, the home was known as the executive mansion.
He is the one who officially changed the name to The White House.????The next Roosevelt, Franklin, would be the one to modernize the White House adding things like air conditioning and necessary wheelchair access.????President Lincoln’s ghost still lives there.
????Presumably staying there when he isn’t doing Lincoln commercials.????According to those who have stayed there, he has appeared to more than one person who has slept in the Lincoln bedroom, but notably according to the Washington Post, he showed himself to Winston Churchill who, when he saw him said,” Good Evening Mr. President, you seem to have me at a disadvantage.”????President Nixon added a bowling alley...during his time in office.
Now that area in the basement serves as the situation room.????Transforming Nixon’s personal playground into a location to discuss national emergencies seems fitting.
