There is a great interview with our “Go To” Guy, who keeps the First White House open on Saturdays and other times when we need him. His name is Henry and he is a re-enactor. The kids love him because he wears his authentic uniform, is a “surgeon”, and also has a wonderful beard and a twinkle in his eye.
Here is the link: http://www.cbs42.com/mediacenter/local.aspx?videoid=3325821– It is done by CBS-4 “on the road” segment. Wonderful shots of the First White House, and a job very well done by Henry.
When one of our savvy members emailed the link to a well-known professional in Montgomery, he commented as follows: “The First White House, like many of our older/historic buildings, is a touchstone to part of our history and development; a gateway, if you will.”
I really liked that, don’t you? A Gateway. Yes, I think we are.
