Photos 3&4 - History of Lafayette Park

This map of the City of Washington from 1828 (right) shows the physical separation of the White House Grounds from President’s Park. Earlier maps of the city (left) do not show a separation. This separation likely indicates the cut through of Pennsylvania Avenue, sometime between 1820 and 1828.
