No tickets are required to visit the President's House Site. It is an outdoor exhibit that visitors explore at their own pace.
The outdoor exhibits examine the paradox between slavery and freedom in the new nation. Presidents Washington and Adams - and their households - once lived and worked at a house on this spot. The house was demolished in 1832, but now videos share the stories of the enslaved who lived and worked here, while text panels shed light on everything from the slave trade to the work of the executive branch. Look for the foundations of the home still embedded in the ground. This is a self-guided exhibit.
The President's House Site is wheelchair accessible. The videos are open captioned. Learn more about the accessibility services offered throughout the park on our website.
