Herbert Hoover's home is on S Street in Washington, D.C. In 1920 President Warren G. Harding appointed Hoover Secretary of Commerce. He and his wife Lou Henry moved into this mansion and lived here until he was elected President in 1929. When Calvin Coolidge decided not to run for a second term as President he reluctantly supported Hoover as the Republican candidate. During the 1928 Republican National Convention Hoover won the presidential nomination on the first ballot. Later in the year he won the election by a landslide. Unfortunately in October of 1929 the Stock Market crashed and Hoover would be the scapegoat for the Great Depression. He was defeated in his second run for president in 1932 by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hoover retained this property during and after his presidency, finally selling it in 1944, when he took up permanent residence at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Today Hoover's former home is the Embassy of Myanmar.
