Also known as the Commandant?s Residence, Quarters Number One, Fort Adams, the Eisenhower House is originally a part of Fort Adams in Newport, Rhode Island. The mansion was built in 1873 by George C. Mason and Son.

Initially inhabited by General Henry Jackson, the Eisenhower House was also used by Dwight D. Eisenhower as a summer residence while he was the US President in 1958 to 1960. His initial residence was actually nearby, at the Naval War College, but his love for golf demanded that he live near the Newport Country Club. This is why the property got its name. It was also known as the Summer White House, being the former president?s favorite summer cottage.

Now a part of the Fort Adams State park, the Eisenhower House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently open for rentals, but make sure to read the rules first.
