The People’s House

U.S. Presidents have lived at a mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. since it was rebuilt after it was burned by the British during the War of 1812. It is important to remember that it is voters who elect the President and their congressional representatives. Even before women could vote, they had a positive impact on the new nation.
