2018 Official White House Ornament Reveal
500 W US Hwy 24
Independence, MO 64050
In 1981, the White House Historical Association launched an initiative to celebrate history by offering unique annual Christmas ornaments to the public. Since then the ornaments have become a sought-after and beloved collector’s item for millions of families around the country, providing an opportunity for admirers of the history and the elegance of the White House to share the traditions and stories of holidays past with the next generation. Conceived by a new designer each year, the ornament honors either an individual president or a significant White House anniversary. This year’s official 2018 White House Christmas Ornament will honor President Truman and his administration.
As part of our President’s Day line-up of events, Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association, will be on hand to unveil this year’s ornament and he will speak about how the different components incorporated into the design are connected to President Truman’s legacy.
