Who was the first President to live in the White House?

John Adams in 1800.

John Adams the first person who lived in the White House.

Another viewpoint

Technically Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to live in the "White House," as he was the first president to actually refer to it as the White House in, 1901. Before, it was referred to as the "Presidential Palace" or the "Executive Mansion." John Adams was the first person to live on the land that would eventually hold the White House. During the war of 1812 British forces burned the Executive Mansion, nearly to the ground, and a new one was built in its place. The first president to occupy the building, which became the White House was James Monroe.

Actually in my John Adams book it said specifically "John Adams was the first president to ever live in the white house."
