Had the first bathtub installed in the white house?

Franklin Pierce had the first bathtub installed in the White House. Rutherford Hayes had the first telephone installed in the White House.


How long ago was the first bathtub installed in the White House?

Around 180 ago seems reasonable. A bathtub of some sort was put in around 1830 when running water was added, mostly for fire protection. My understanding is that they had a boiler in which water was heated, but no hot running water, so the tub would have to be filled via buckets . It was around 20 years later that hot running water was put in.


What president installed the first bathtub in the White House?

First Bathtub in White HouseBest evidence seems to point to Andrew Jackson as installing the first bathtub with running water between 1829 and 1833. Jackson and his designer spoke with pride that, in their bathroom, you could have a warm, cold, or shower bath. However, running water was only available on the first floor. If someone in the upstairs living quarters wanted a bath, a portable tub was brought in and water carried up to fill it. In 1853 President Franklin Pierce had running water and a hot water heater installed upstairs. He surely had a bathtub but it may have been portable without a built-drain.(There is a legend that Millard Fillmore installed the first tub. .This legend is actually false. The columnist H. L. Mencken made up the story about Millard Fillmore, and later confessed that it is was made up, and that he had no idea who installed the first bathtub with running water.)

Andrew Jackson was the president when the White House got running water. There were wood fired boilers to heat water for baths, so there may have been only a few hot water taps.
