This short tour includes numerous landmarks including monuments and historic buildings that surround the White House. Every President who followed George Washington has lived in the White House and the grounds surrounding the mansion have served as the location for many of the nation's most historic events. Highlights of the tour include monuments dedicated to military leaders such as Baron von Steuben and early statesmen such as Alexander Hamilton. The tour also includes stops at nearby buildings such as Blair House and the Renwick Gallery. Please note that historic landmarks near the White House are within a security fence, so those taking this walking tour in person will be limited to viewing those landmarks from a distance.
