Both strange and amazing at the same time. Really isn't a house. Just brick foundation walls. Still amazing if you know the history.

Good trip. This attraction is located directly in front of the Liberty Bell Center. We arrived at approximately 10:15 am after finishing our tour of the Liberty Bell Center. The President's House contained many informational plaques about the site of the nation's first executive mansion....More

I wandered over to the President's House by chance because I was intrigued by the site, which features the outlines of a house but I discovered that it is about re-imaging the concept of "house" and, more importantly, who lives in it and how. I...More

Theres a movie playing about Washington’s slaves. It’s thought provoking. However I was confused because I was looking for a house. The whole concept is lost on me. Didn’t care for it, just hurried through as it was pouring and wasn’t interested in getting soaked...More
