this is a must-go if you are visiting philadelphia for its history. once the "white house" when philadelphia was the capital of the US, this was where george washington called home for 6+ years and also where he kept/hid slaves despite being it being abolished in the state of PA. how very ironic that only a few steps away is where the liberty bell now stands today...

though there is not much to see here (you will see the house's foundation where the slaves' quarters were, but there is mostly signage and videos), the president's house tells such a strong tale that this site should not be missed. you can easily do a quick walk through before or after seeing the liberty bell.
