Though it is common knowledge that the U. S. President lives in the White House, it’s not so well known where the Vice President resides. So where in Washington, DC is the Vice President’s house?
The answer – Number One Observatory Circle, on the grounds of the United States Naval Observatory at 34th Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW (about one mile northeast of Georgetown University). See a map.
The three-story Victorian-style mansion was originally built in 1893 as the home of the superintendent of the United States Naval Observatory. In 1974, Congress designated the house as the official residence of the Vice President. Until that time vice presidents bought their own homes in Washington, DC. The Naval Observatory has continued to operate as a research facility where scientists make observations of the sun, moon, planets and stars.
