Special Features:The White House was originally constructed (1792-1800) on the site selected by George Washington and included in L'Enfant's Plan. It has been the residence and office of every US President since John Adams first took occupancy in November of 1800. Despite some additions and minor changes, the exterior of the main structure remains much as it was in 1800. The interior has been completely renovated using the historic floor plan.
