White House

White House For over two centuries, the White House has been an American icon, symbolizing the US government, its people, and the Office of the President. White House history, and the history of the nation"s capital, began when President George Washington signed an Act of Congress in December of 1790 declaring that the federal government would make its home in a space of ten miles square, set aside on the Potomac River.

National Archives
The National Archives, occupied in 1935, is the repository of the more valuable and rare documents of this Government as well as a reference library. On display in the Exhibition Hall are the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. By the 20th century, the need for a central repository was urgent, and the Public Buildings Act passed by Congress in 1926 appropriated funds for plans for acquisition of the site. Planned as a square with fountains by L'Enfant, this site was the location of the Marsh Market constructed in 1801 and known as Center Market following the Civil War.
