On top of everything else. A couple years ago I set a goal to visit at least one house that each President had lived in, sometime in their life (with the exception of the White House). After recently adding private residences that Presidents Ford and Obama lived in, I've got at least one for each except for Chester Arthur. But I have visited his reconstructed Birthplace and / or boyhood home in Vermont. So that will do for now until I make it to see his house in NYC.
In the cases in which I've seen multiple houses for a President, I'll pick my favorite 1 or 2.
The White House Washington DC.
The one house most of the Presidents have in common. Every President from John Adams to Barack Obama has lived here.
George Washington's "Mt. Vernon". Mt. Vernon, Virginia
John Adams "Peacefield". Quincy, Massachusetts
Thomas Jefferson's "Monticello". Charlottesville, Virginia
James Monroe's "Ashlawn Highland". Charlottesville, Virginia
John Tyler's "Sherwood Forest". Charles City County, Virginia
Abraham Lincoln's Summer Retreat "Lincoln Cottage". Washington DC
William McKinley's "Saxton McKinley" house. Family home of his in laws, where he lived for many years. Canton, Ohio
John F. Kennedy's birthplace. Brookline, Massachusetts
Richard M. Nixon's birthplace. Yorba Linda, California
George H. W. Bush's "Walkers Point". Originally his Grandfathers home, this has been 41's lifelong vacation house. Bush still owns the house, so it is unavailable for tours. Kennebunkport, Maine.
George W. Bush's infant home. Bush 43 was born while his Dad was a student at Yale. At the time this house was reserved for students who were married. When George 41 and Barbara left the hospital this is where they brought their new baby home to. New Haven, Conneticut
Many of the boyhood homes are pretty simple. I think it's really cool to see how men from such humble beginnings can achieve the highest office in the land. Only in America.....
