Since 2010, the White House Historical Association has been based in historic Decatur House on Lafayette Square in Washington, DC. Each year we honor the namesake of our headquarters with the Stephen Decatur Luncheon that takes place on or around his birthday of January 5th.

In 2021 we welcomed a number of distinguished guests to discuss Decatur House, the legacy of Commodore Stephen Decatur, and objects from his life that are in various collections, including at the United States Naval Academy Museum. Panelists include:

- Katherine Malone-France, Chief Preservation Officer, National Trust for Historic Preservation
- Osborne Phinizy Mackie, co-Author, The Stephen Decatur House: A History
- Commander Claude Berube, Director, United States Naval Academy Museum

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy founded the White House Historical Association in 1961 to help the White House collect and exhibit the very best artifacts of American history and culture. Over the past 60 years, the Association has changed and grown, expanding our mission to include robust education initiatives and historical resources related to the White House.
