The White House Plantation was part of a large land holding that John Custis purchased from the family of John Lightfoot III. Daniel Custis inherited the property from his father. In 1750 he married of Martha (Dandridge) Custis. Daniel died unexpectedly in 1757, leaving the White House Plantation to his wife. Martha Custis would later meet George Washington and on January 6, 1759 would hold their wedding ceremony in one of the rooms of the White House Mansion.

Union troops stationed at the White House Plantation (of the Army of the Potomac) under the command of George B. McClellan, would burn the White House to the ground on June 28, 1862, as they retreated during the Seven Days Battles.  [jet] [ph:L]
