George Washington lived at Mount on Vernon. His house was opened to many guests. The funning thing is, in Washington’s day it was rude to ask guests how long they were staying at your house. So, basically guests stayed as long as they wanted.

The White House is the home to our President. When we got there, we saw a helicopter land in the lawn and I think the President might have been on board. While the helicopter was landing we saw Secret Service Agents on the roof of the White House making sure that nobody sneaks up on the President.

This is the capitol building of the United States. It was originally built in 1800. Congressmen and Senators meet there to pass laws. It was burned in 1814 by the British and later rebuilt. Look how they have a scaffolding built around the dome. On that scaffolding are men working to repair cracks because the dome is very old.
