The White House Cornerstone

it may be a nice aside, with the presidential election in full swing, to remember that on this date in 1792 the cornerstone of The White House was laid. Of course, at the time it was called the Executive Mansion (it was in 1902 when teddy Roosevelt officially named it “The White House”). I am a bit of a history buff when it comes to this building, and its occupants. Perhaps I can post a little bit more in the coming weeks and months…

Certainly we can all pray what John Adams (first president to move into the WH): ‘May God bless the man who lives and serves here.’
