George Washington moves into the Samuel Osgood House shortly before being named the nation's first President
New York City was functioning as the nation's capital and President Washington's inauguration was held at the original Federal Hall on April 30, 1789. Washington would live in the Osgood House until February 1790 when he moved to the larger Alexander Macomb House in Lower Manhattan. Both the first and second presidential residences have since been demolished.
