"Summer White House"The Piney Point area possesses its own unique social history and charm. Named for the loblolly and long leaf yellow pines along the shoreline, Piney Point became the social center of Washington D.C. between 1820 and 1910. President James Monroe vacationed here in 1820 in a cottage that became known as the "Summer White House." Presidential guests Franklin Pierce and Theodore Roosevelt often came to Piney Point to escape Washington's summers.
