Washington vacated the President's House on March 9, 1797, within a few days of Adams's inauguration. Abigail was not present, but Adams wrote her: "The furniture belonging to the public is in the most deplorable condition. There is not a chair to sit in. The beds and bedding are in a woeful pickle. This house has been been a scene of the most scandalous drinking and disorder among the servants that I ever heard of. I would not have one of them for any consideration. There is not a carpet nor curtain, nor any glass, nor linen, nor china, nor anything." -- JA to AA, March 22, 1797. Washington's left behind two of his secretaries to oversee the transition. There is nothing in their letters to him that corroborates the claims Adams made to Abigail or indicates that there had been anything amiss. Washington removed the furniture he had personally bought to supplement the government furniture (after Adams declined his offer to buy it at cost). Congress later appropriated money for Adams to buy additional furniture. Following the repainting of the house's interior, Adams took occupancy on March 21, 1797.
Washington put the welfare of the nation before his own. Andrew Jackson did things that were based off of how he felt and said it was best for the people.
Only George Washington, who lived in New York City and then in Philadelphia, which were the nation's first capitals. He never lived in the White House. John Adams was the first to live in the White House. He moved there in November, 1800 soon after the Capital moved to Washington.
President George Washington never lived in the White House. John and Abigail Adams were the first to move into the White House before construction was finished. They lived there for only a few months before Thomas Jefferson was sworn into office.
I checked from Buchanan to Polk and can safely assume that Lincoln was the youngest of all presidents before him. Johnson is also older than Lincoln; however, Grant and Hayes belong to an entirely younger generation. So I can say that the 15 presidents before Lincoln plus the one president (Johnson) after Lincoln would be: 16 presidents. -Reloque

George Washington lived most of his life in Virginia. That is where he was born and where he lived before he was president. As President, he took up residence at the President's House in Philadelphia because the White House had not yet been built. When his two terms as President were over, he moved back to Virginia, which is where he died.
