National Park Service, District of Columbia.
Every president except George Washington has called the White House and its surrounding grounds his place of work, rest, and solitude. Recognizable around the world, the White House stands as a symbol of democracy. The White House and its park grounds serve not only as the seat of the executive branch of government of the United States of America, but also as an iconic place for civil discourse.
The White House is located in downtown Washington, DC, directly north of the Washington Monument. The park boundaries are between 17th and 15th Streets NW on the east and west and between Constitution Ave NW and H St NW on the north and south. The nearest Metro stations are Farragut North/South, McPherson Square, and Federal Triangle. The park visitor center is located at 15th St. & Pennsylvania Ave.
