Donald Trump’s new Washington D.C. address will be a bit smaller than his popular Palm Beach, Florida estate. Maybe that’s why Trump has suggested that he intends to spend a significant amount of time at Mar-a-Lago, which he referred to as “the Winter White House” in a recent Twitter post.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Mar-a-Lago was built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and opened for the 1927 winter season with 58 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms. The estate was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1980 and sat empty until Trump purchased it in 1985 for $8 million. Trump and his then-wife Ivana spent years restoring the property.
Construction of the White House, home of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800, began in 1792.
