2009 White House Historical Association Cleveland Christmas Ornament

The 2009 Official White House Historical Association Ornament is the second ornament honoring the administration of President Grover Cleveland. Grover Cleveland is the only president to have two different ornaments created uniquely for his administration, one in 2007 and the other in 2009. Grover Cleveland served as the 22nd President from 1885-89 and the 24th President from 1893-97. Benjamin Harrison defeated him in the middle of his terms.

In 1894 the Clevelands were the first in the White House to celebrate Christmas with rare electric lights on their tree. One hundred multi-colored lights replaced candles for the first time. The ornament reveals a brightly lit tree shining through the window in the library on the second floor of the South Portico. The irridescent ornament is set in lavender housing.

This wonderful ornament comes with booklet describing the ornament and Cleveland's second term. It is gift-boxed in delicate blue featuring the South Portico of the White House.
