The history of the U.S. presidential residence began when George Washington selected the site in 1791. Irish-born architect James Hoban saw the cornerstone laid in 1792. The South and North Porticos were later added, as was the Executive Office Building, now called the West Wing. The names “President’s Palace,” “Executive Mansion” and the “President’s House” are all part of the residence’s history. It was President Theodore Roosevelt who officially gave it the name “White House” in 1901. Source: WhiteHouse.gov
