After

In 1921, Warren G. Harding moved into the White House. But before he made 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. his home, Harding built and lived in a Georgian-style brick home in Washington. Now almost a century later, homeowners Brook Rose and Gregg Busch are faced with turning around the overgrown Harding home and restoring its historic splendor.
