Grover Cleveland - Only President Married in White House

By June 2, 2011

Follow me on:

President Grover Cleveland became the first and only president to marry in the White House on June 2, 1886. After the death of his law partner he became the guardian of his daughter. This relationship eventually changed into one of romance when she became older. For a time, Cleveland allowed the media to believe that his interest was actually in the widow Folsom instead of Frances Folsom the daughter. After this became public knowledge he again toyed with the media as to the location of the upcoming marriage. They did not decide to marry in the White House until the very end. Cleveland and his wife remained devoted to one another until his death.
