number one smNumber One Observatory Circle: The Home of the Vice President of the United States

By Charles Denyer

Quietly situated on the grounds of the United States Naval Observatory (USNO) in our nation's capital lies Number One Observatory Circle, the official residence of the vice president of the United States. Built in 1893, the handsome and stately Queen Anne-style home is surrounded by a forest-like setting, complete with lush greenery, wildlife, and the serene sounds of nature, yet sits just footsteps away from the bustling traffic on Massachusetts Avenue.
From never-before-seen photos to candid conversations with former vice-presidents, family members, political power players of their time, and others - Charles Denyer brings to life untold stories and memorable moments of the three-story, green-shuttered mansion covered in layers of off-white paint, and the people who were privileged to call it home.
