🇺🇸 ‘The Red Room’ from John Zweigel’s 1” scale miniature White House. The house is 60 feet long, 20 feet wide, and weighs 10 tons.
John Zweifel first visited the White House in 1956 when he was 20 years. Only five rooms were open to the public at the time, but he was so entranced Zweifel decided to make a model of what he saw. Taking pictures was forbidden, note taking too, for fear of bomb plots. He would take the tour, commit what he saw to memory, then sketch the rooms and make notes as soon as he left the building.
His first miniature effort was a 1/12 scale room box, which expanded to the five rooms available to him. He was such a frequent visitor that during Gerald Fords administration, Zweifel was granted access to more rooms and over time his miniature White House grew to its present size. His White House miniature needed a permanent home.
The model has been on exhibition in all 50 states plus England, Holland, and Japan. Over 42 million Americans have seen it. In 1992 and 1993 it was exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution and the Kennedy and Reagan libraries. It has since been exhibited in most of the other Presidential libraries.
