The President’s House: Freedom and Slavery in the Making of a New Nation

The President’s House: Freedom and Slavery in the Making of a New Nation

A dramatic nighttime view of The President’s House on Independence Mall lends even more significance to the site. Video re-enactments, illustrated glass panels and timelines tell the story of the home where Presidents Washington and Adams lived during their terms and where nine enslaved people served the first president.
