Some Fun Washington DC Facts
- John Adams was the first president to occupy the White House in 1800; one of his first additions was a vegetable garden.
- In 1801, Thomas Jefferson was active in planning improvements for the Executive Mansion (White House) garden, including a stone wall around the house. He also directed the planting of numerous trees between 1802 and 1806.
- While the White House was being rebuilt after the 1814 fire, James Monroe increased tree plantings on the grounds based on plans by architect Charles Bulfinch.
- Pennsylvania Avenue did not originally cross in front of the White House. The area was a public common used for fairs and parades. In 1822 the avenue was cut through the north side of the President's Park and soon thereafter Lafayette Park was established.
- The federal government used Charles Bulfinch's planting scheme for a thick grove of trees for the square north of the White House and named the park in honor of General Lafayette in 1824-1825.
- In 1825, John Quincy Adams developed the first flower garden on the White House grounds and planted ornamental trees.
