Rosebud Cabin

Rosebud Cabin

Rosebud cabin was built in 1958.  As you can see on this map, it is located near Cedar cabin, the Camp Commander's residence, away from all of the other guest cabins.

Cabin Assignments for 1959 Khrushchev visit
 In 1959, when Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev visited Camp David, the Rosebud cabin was used to house agents from the U.S. Secret Service and the Soviet Security team.

The graphic to the right shows the Rosebud cabin being assigned to security personnel for the Khrushchev visit. The list came from the Camp David Operations Plan for that visit.

Likewise, for the 1973 Brezhnev visit, the "traveling heads of the U.S. Secret Service and Russian Secret police shared a cabin in the pines called Rosebud" according to this June 21, 1973 newspaper article.
