In a very exciting development, the White House Museum website has acquired 23 original builder's plans from 1948-1952. They vary in size, but most are around 48 in x 40 in. They are machine copied, but several of them have hand-made notations on them.

These are now part of the private collection of site director Derek Jensen but several are sponsored by kind visitors like you. Please consider being a part of this little piece of history by donating to the site or sponsoring one of the documents.
