Guide to the White House

The White HouseThe White House: Our presidents, from John Adams to Barack Obama, have lived in the White House as they served their terms of office. This building is one of the most easily recognizable in the world symbolizing the United States (and yes, it’s white).

Construction on the White House began in 1792 and was completed in 1800. The building has 132 rooms and serves as the residence for the president and his family, as well as housing offices for the president and his staff, and the First Lady and her staff. The building contains four floors, with the second and third floors devoted as the First Family’s residence. The West Wing is reserved for the president and his top staff while the East Wing houses the First Lady and her staff. Learn more about “the people’s residence” by reading the articles below.
