Sir Isaac Newton's home site is on Jermyn Street in London. When Newton became Warden of the Royal Mint in April, 1696, he moved to London where he spent seven months living near the Tower of London, which was then the location of the Mint. In November, 1696, he moved into Jermyn Street. He first lived at No. 88, a home which had been built in 1675, then in 1700 he moved next door to No. 87, the house which stood on this site, where he lived until 1709. During this time, in addition to his job running the mint, he was also president of the Royal Society, a position he held from 1703 to 1727. The original house next door at no. 88 still stands, but the house on this site, at No. 87, was demolished and rebuilt in 1915. A blue plaque notes he lived here.
