On this day in 1792, the cornerstone was laid for a presidential residence in the newly designated capital city of Washington. Work began on the neoclassical White House building at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue under the guidance of Irish American architect James Hoban. President George Washington chose the site.
In 1800, President John Adams became the first president to reside in the executive mansion, which soon became known as the “White House” because its white-gray Virginia freestone contrasted strikingly with the red brick of nearby buildings.
In 1814, during the War of 1812, British soldiers set the White House on fire along with the U.S. Capitol in retaliation for the burning of government buildings in Canada by U.S. troops. The burned-out building was subsequently rebuilt and enlarged under the direction of James Hoban, who added east and west terraces to the main building, along with a semicircular south portico and a colonnaded north portico. The smoke-stained stone walls were painted white.
The White House is the oldest federal building in the nation’s capital.
