Who was the first U.S. President to move into the White House?

  • George Washington
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John Adams correct

    When George Washington became President, the idea of a "President's House" buzzed amongst the patriots . The building took eight years to construct (or you know, the entire amount of time a person can serve as president) and it was built just in time for the second president of the United States, John Adams, to move in 215 years ago. Since it's construction, each president has added their own personal touches, a basketball court here, a banquet hall there, a 6 person bathtub just to sprinkle on top. The final overhaul took place after Harry Truman entered office in 1945 and the modestly named "house" we all know today was formed.
