The White House - A Remarkable Presidential Address

Nestled in the heart of downtown Washington, DC overlooking the historic National Mall, the White House has been a home to 43 U.S. Presidents and is arguably one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. Constructed between 1792 and 1800, this iconic mansion was designed by distinguished Irish architect, James Hoban, and has become an emblematic representation of the United States since President John Adams took up residence in 1800. Home to Presidential lodgings, office space, sports and recreation facilities, and stunning flower and vegetable gardens, the White House features three stories, 11 alcoves, a dignified portico, and a pleasing Georgian design. Hosting more than 1,250,000 visitors every year, the White House is one of the most popular attractions in the Nation's Capitol.

  • Which first lady began the tradition of decorating the White House at Halloween?

    First Lady Mamie Eisenhower was the first person to decorate the White House for Halloween. In 1956, she hosted a luncheon for the wives of White House staff members in the State Dining Room and included a Halloween theme in the decor.
  • Who was the only president not to live in the White House?

    George Washington, who ended his service in 1797, is the only U.S. President who never lived in the White House. Although he chose the site for the mansion's construction and approved the plans designed by talented architect, James Hoban, Washington died before the seat of the federal government moved from Philadelphia to the capitol that bears his name.
