A brief history of the White House

George Washington, the first president of the United States, chose the site of the White House in 1791. Its construction work started on 13 October 1792. Competitions were held among architects for the design of the White House. The winner of that competition was James Hoban, an architect of Irish descent. President Washington chose the design of the vast Georgian-style building in Hoban from at least six of the designs given by architects. This is the beginning of the journey of this iconic building in the United States.
