Presidential Tour

White_House

As a lifelong student of American history, Candice enjoys learning about the presidents throughout history and will admit that she can rattle off from memory – and in order – all 45 of our national leaders. It comes as no surprise that she also has made it kind of a hobby to visit the burial sites of these presidents (obviously excluding those still alive).

Keep track of her progress here.

*Any with a “?” means the photographs are lost somewhere in the house or were visited before she had a computer.
