Replicate the home to the nation’s Head of State. There are few structures in the United States with the history and reverence of The White House, designed by James Hoban. On July 16, 1792, President George Washington chose this James Hoban design from six competing designs from renowned architects.
This six-story Sandstone structure was meant to command respect for the nation from citizens and foreign visitors. Construction took place from 1792 – 1800 and it was rebuilt by Hoban following the fire of 1814.
The assembled White House model stands 9″ (22 cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.

This is a really cool design. Very realistic and very detailed. We have purchased and assembled several Lego Architecture designs. They are consistently impressive, and this was no exception.
Expensive but fun! – By Erica B. Beleau on January 5, 2016
Me and my 10 year old had a really good time putting this together! Just hard enough. Lego is definitely charging top dollar for a little “toy”, but this one we will keep and collect more 🙂
