|A fact from Beehive House appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 31 August 2005. The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
Someone posted this question on the encyclopedia page, and I'm moving it here:
- If not built until 1854, then how could it serve as executive mansion already in 1852 + 1853??
- That's a good question. The answer is simple: I have no idea. I got all the information for the article from the site linked at the bottom (no, I didn't just copy & paste it--I gathered the facts and wrote a new text). Perhaps it was a typo from the original text? I don't know. Until someone can find out, however, I'm leaving it in. — Frecklefoot | Talk 14:34, August 31, 2005 (UTC)
- A possible source of confusion to the original researchers could be that the President's Office was a smaller building (construction began in 1852), located between Beehive House and Lion House. I don't know if the structure still exists or was later tied into the other residences. -- Robocoder (t|c) 22:10, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
