The mansions of the previous eight vice presidential families have been near the Naval Observatory since 1974.
Despite being the first in line to become President of the United States, the Vice President does not have a separate residence in the White House. No one other than John Adams has served as President of the United States and lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue since 1800.
Where is the vice president’s residence?
Every vice president since Walter Mondale has lived at the United States Naval Observatory (USNO) in Washington, District of Columbia. Astronomers may view and follow the movements of the planets, moon, and sun while utilizing it as their home to generate astronomical data that can be utilized in navigational systems. Various vice presidents, most notably Al Gore, have received dignitaries and officials from foreign nations at the Naval Observatory in the past.
When Walter Mondale moved into the Naval Observatory home in 1977, he created history by being the first Vice President to do so. Eleanor Mondale, Vice President Walter Mondale’s daughter, has alleged that her father’s home is haunted and that she was obliged to bring the Secret Service into her room after seeing a spirit there.
