Now this is a unique post for you. We came across a fascinating directory from the 53rd Congress (i.e., from 1893 to 1895 during Grover Cleveland’s second term in the White House). We wanted to do a little digging to see where the members of his cabinet lived and then map that on a Google Map. Check out what we came up with.

For those of you who haven’t memorized the names of President Cleveland’s second cabinet, they are listed below.

Click on this interesting map to see who lived where. It’s interesting to see how close everyone lived to each other. Washington was a really different time back then, when leaders in all branches of government lived close to each other in D.C. and socialized outside of work.
