Additional Details:
From the time of John Adams to the present the White House has been the home of presidents. The Cornerstone was laid in 1792, and its was constructed of Virginia freestone. During the war of 1812 it was set afire by the British and only the walls were left sanding; when restored, the exterior was painted white to hide the scares of the fire.
