John and Abigail wrote each other great letters. Historians regard them as a wonderful window into the tumultuous times, from independence to the creation of the new nation.
On this day in 1800, President & Mrs. Adams moved into The White House:
John and Abigail Adams lived in what she called “the great castle” for only five months. Shortly after they moved in, Thomas Jefferson defeated Adams in his bid for re-election.It was called The President's House and then The White House.
Abigail was happy to leave Washington and departed in February 1801 for Quincy.
As Jefferson was being sworn in on March 4, 1801, John Adams was already on his way back to Massachusetts, where he and Abigail lived out the rest of their days at their family farm.
