circa 1819The gates, which were installed in 1819, were one of the finishing touches to the reconstruction of the White House after it was burned during the War of 1812. The gates were commissioned by President James Monroe and were fabricated at the New York forge of Paulus Hedl, an Austrian smith and foundryman. James Hoban, the original architect of the White House, and builder in charge if the reconstruction, oversaw the installation.
