The White House - Home To America's First Family

As one of the most iconic landmarks in America, the White House has served as home and office to U.S. Presidents since it welcomed Thomas Jefferson and the first Presidential family in 1801. The landmark building was designed by the celebrated Irish architect, James Hoban, with construction beginning in 1792. Designed in a neoclassical architectural style, the majestic home includes three levels of living quarters, recreational facilities, office spaces, and gardens. The mansion is open to public tours and hosts over 1,250,000 visitors from around the world each year. Situated in the heart of the nation's capital, the White House has become a symbolic representation of the United States and is one of the most visited attractions in Washington, DC.
