The Decatur House pictured on this stamp is one of the oldest surviving structures in Washington DC.

It was built in 1818 and is currently a museum and designated as The National Center for White House History. Over the years it housed many prominent politicians and is located across the street from the White House.

The museum features a special exhibit on African American History as it is one of the few remaining examples of slave quarters in urban areas. This is especially interesting considering it’s close proximity to the White House and the use of slaves within its sight.
