In 2010 tall fences went up outside the West Wing of the White House. This massive $376 million-dollar construction project was intensely guarded from the prying eyes of the press and downplayed as nothing more than a routine upgrade to the wiring and air conditioning systems of the White House. What is the true story behind this sprawling, multistory structure whose underground assembly required truckloads of heavy-duty concrete and steel beams?

From the first bunkers built to protect FDR and Truman, to the rumored passageways, elevators and vault doors with biometric access control systems, "Secret History of the White House" explores both the hidden and known lairs that that lie beneath the most important piece of real estate in America.
