Birthplace of American Government

Here on Wall Street, George Washington took the oath of office as our first President, and this site was home to the first Congress, Supreme Court, and Executive Branch offices. The current structure, a Customs House, later served as part of the US Sub-Treasury. Now, the building serves as a museum and memorial to our first President and the beginnings of the United States of America.

The National Park Service will be 100 years old in 2016.

On August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was created by the U.S Congress and President Woodrow Wilson. Join the centennial celebration!
