Are You Curious...?
The White House (officially called the Executive Office of the President of the United States) has housed every president since John Adams. Completed in 1800, it was soon expanded by Thomas Jefferson, and then burned by the British in 1814. Legend says that it was painted white to hide damage from the fire. It was rebuilt by 1817. It was commonly called "The Presidential Mansion" or "President's Palace" before the White House name took hold around 1811. Under President (and wheelchair user) Franklin D Roosevelt, the White House became the first handicapped-accessible building in Washington. It hasn't changed much since the Truman reconstruction of the early 1950s.
