This Week in History - October 9, 2011

This week marks the initial construction of the White House in Washington, D.C. Free Masons laid the first cornerstone to the White House on October 13, 1792. Although the site of the house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was chosen by George Washington, the first president to actually live in the White House was John Adams, the second president of the United States, who moved in on November 1, 1800.
