Home: Pennsylvania Avenue NW and 19th Street NW, Washington, DC

Visited: 10/16/2022

Log Excerpt: "Seven Buildings. Constructed in 1796, they were some of the earliest residential structures built in the city. One of the Seven Buildings was the presidential home of James Madison and his wife, Dolley, after the burning of the White House in 1814, and later (as we also newly discovered) the residence of Martin Van Buren shortly before and after his inauguration as president. Signer Elbridge Gerry lived in it while he was vice president from 1813 till his death in 1814. The political practice of gerrymandering is named after him. The facades of two buildings were incorporated (very neatly, we thought) into the Embassy of Mexico in 1986."

Log Excerpt: "Continuing more north in typical DC traffic I stopped at Congressional Cemetery. Although I had been here before as an NHL, this stop was to see the grave of Signer Elbridge Gerry, which I quickly found."
