Not designated a US Monument but is part of President’s Park and is considered a National Registered Landmark administered by the National Park Service. After visiting the Lincoln Memorial, by coincidence, I visited the White House the evening that President Richard Nixon resigned. There were great crowds and television networks everywhere airing live reports. It was very chaotic at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW but although my black and white photos did not do justice, the White House lit up at night was very majestic looking. The construction on the famous building was finished in 1800 and many additions since then have taken place.
