WH Stables

Also visible are the White House stables, a portion of which were glimpsed at The President's White. The stables were razed in the summer of 1911.

Constitution Hall?

Isn't the name of the Daughters of the American Revolution auditorium Constitution Hall, not Continental Hall? I could be wrong, but I lived in DC for a short time and I seem to remember Constitution Hall.

[Constitution Hall wasn't built until 1929. -tterrace]
