The White House and its surrounding grounds serve as the home of the President of the United States and First Family. It’s also a museum of American history—and a place where that history continues to unfold every day.

  • The White House has been occupied by every president since John Adams, and the history of this building extends far beyond the construction of its walls.
  • Camp David, located in Catoctin Mountain Park in Frederick County, Maryland, and known formally as the Naval Support Facility Thurmont, has been the presidential retreat since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s time in office.
  • Air Force One is used to describe any Air Force aircraft carrying the President. Today, this name refers to one of two highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft.
