Is the White House the oldest public building in Washington DC?

The White House as we know it was completed first, but it's really a toss up as to whether the White House or the Capitol can be considered the oldest. Construction of the White House began in 1792 and of the Capitol in 1793. John Adams moved into the White House on or about November 1, 1800; the first session of Congress to take place in the Capitol began on November 17, 1800. Construction on both buildings continued for many years. The Commandant's House at the Marine Barracks in southeast DC is said to be "the oldest public building in continuous use in the nation's capital," but it was not completed until 1806.
