Fall '15 in DC: Touring the White House

Interesting fact about the White House Briefing Room: the term 'Press Pool' was coined after room's previous use as the White House pool. It was converted to its current purpose during the Nixon Administration, but much of the original wall tiles remain (not pictured). This stop was just one of the highlights of our [ed note: private, after-hours] West Wing Tour.
