Home: President's House, 524–30 Market Street, 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. [In 1781, it was purchased, refurbished, and expanded by Robert Morris, signer of the Declaration of Independence]. 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."
