President's House - Philadelphia - 6th and Market Sts

There were several residences of George Washington as first president in New York and Philadelphia.  All except one, a summer residence in Philly, have been torn down and are nearly forgotten.  These images are of a replica of the President’s House during his tenure in Phila 1790-1797. It was built for the Sesquicentennial (150 Years) Exposition in Philly in 1926.  It too was torn down after that Exposition.
