The President’s House Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and National Park Service Superintendent Cynthia MacLeod lead the ribbon-cutting ceremony at The President’s House: Freedom and Slavery in the Making of a New Nation, the newest addition to Philadelphia’s Independence Mall. Located just steps away from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the site tells the story of the inhabitants of the first Executive Mansion: Presidents George Washington and John Adams and nine enslaved Africans held by Washington.
