开始建造白宫 (White House) 了:17921013

谁是第一位住在白宫的总统呢?虽然乔治华盛顿在担任总统时选择了白宫的所在地,但是他却从来没有住在这个有名的建筑物里。在国会于1790年宣布华盛顿为美国永久首都之前,这个国家的首都是在费城。

白宫在17921013日开始建造,八年之后,美国第二任总统约翰亚当斯和他的妻子艾碧该,搬进了这栋官邸。在挑选总统官邸设计图的时候,各方竞争相当的激烈。你知道有哪一位总统曾经参与设计图的竞赛吗?


Who was the first president to live in the White House? Although George Washington helped to choose the site for the residence while he was president, he never lived at the famous house. Philadelphia had been the country's capital before Congress declared the city of Washington the permanent capital of the United States in 1790.

The cornerstone of the White House was laid on October 13, 1792. Eight years later, John Adams, the second president, and his wife Abigail, moved into the mansion. A competition had been held to design the presidential residence. Can you guess which future president participated in the competition?
