Landscape Plan for the White House

This plan for the White House grounds was completed between 1802 and 1805. Thomas Jefferson likely created the plan during his presidency. The darker marks are attributed to Benjamin Henry Latrobe, the British architect who contributed to the design of the White House and the U.S. Capitol. The plan, which distinguishes the White House grounds from the surrounding President's Park, was largely carried out and remained intact until the 1860s.
