Home: Richland Hill, Corner of Varick and Van Dam Streets, New York, NY

Visited: 2/28/18

Log Excerpt: "As the first Vice-President of the United States, Adams lived in a mansion located on Richmond Hill. The house had been previously used by Washington as his headquarters and Aaron Burr later lived there. In 1817, the land was subdivided by John Jacob Astor and sold for residential development. It was located near Lispenard’s Meadows at the corner of what was then Varick and Van Dam streets. The original home being long gone, all we could do is photo the current building on the street corner."

Home: President's House, Philadelphia, PA

Visited: 10/18/2013

Log Excerpt: "We headed back to the Liberty Bell area for President’s House, a relatively new NHP exhibit. It is an outdoor presentation on the excavated remains of what was the third Presidential Mansion. It housed George Washington from November 1790 to March 1797, and John Adams from March 1797 to May 1800. A ghost outline and partial walls showed how the house would have been placed and looked, there was lots of signage and videos on the Presidents and slavery, and a clear-covered area over the partially excavated foundation."
