Trivia: What was the previous name for the White House?
The Great House
The correct answer is Executive Mansion
So why is this answer correct? : Before it was known simply as the White House, the U.S. President’s place of residence enjoyed several different nicknames. Initially denoted on early maps as the President’s Palace, the White House was officially named the Executive Mansion in 1819, in order to avoid any monarchical undertones. The “White House” nickname was in use around that time, and it was President Theodore Roosevelt who made the nickname official in 1902.
