One Man's Dream


For John Zweifel a dream of sixteen years—a dream to create an authentic replica of the White House as a gift to his country—was realized on December 18, 1975. On this date, Mr. and Mrs. Zweifel unveiled the hand carved White House Replica for President and Mrs. Gerald Ford at the "Pageant of Peace" in Washington, D.C.

Years of painstaking research, compiled and documented, preceded the over 200,000 man hours necessary to build this rare model art treasure. Solid white columns, the gleaming facade, and the splendid porticos of the White House are now captured for the first time in a genuine reproduction. Extending sixty feet from its West to East Wing, every detail of the stately mansion is faithfully recreated on a one-inch to one-foot scale.

Now, the dream and the labor of love is to be shared with thousands of Americans. It is certain to create a better understanding and to instill immense pride in our rich American heritage.
