Theodore Roosevelt's home is on Jackson Place in Washington, D.C. It was here the 26th president lived during 1902. He inherited the office on September 14, 1901 after the assassination of William McKinley, for whom he served under as vice president. Shortly after his rise to presidency Roosevelt went forward with renovations to the West Wing of the White House. The firm of McKim, Mead and White was hired to reform building's Victorian design into a more up to date Neoclassical look. For the four months the work took place Roosevelt and his family took up residence in this home.
