William Howard Taft's home is on Wyoming Avenue in Washington, D.C. Newly elected President Warren G. Harding appointed Taft Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 1921, at which time he moved into this 1904 mansion in the Kalorama neighborhood of D.C. He was the first former President (he served from 1909 to 1913) to serve in this position. Through the years Taft's weight was always a topic of discussion, he was the heaviest President, and he peaked at 340 pounds in his prime. By the time he served as Chief Justice his health was beginning to fail, he was getting older, more confused, and having a difficult time getting around. He was forced to resign in February 1930 and on March 8 of that same year Taft died here in his home. He would become the first President to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
