The DEJOY\WOS Family Foundation is a proud benefactor of the Vice President’s Residence Foundation, a charitable organization established in 1991 to help raise money to promote and support the historical preservation and furnishing of the official residence of the Vice President of the United States, located at the Naval Observatory. Built in 1893, the private residence at Number One Observatory Circle features Queen Anne-style architecture and is just 2.5 miles from the White House.
For 30 years, it served as the home of the superintendent of the US Naval Observatory; then in 1923, it became the official residence for the head of the Navy. In 1974, Congress designated the house as the home of the vice president. Every vice president has lived there since Mondale, bringing their own unique touch to the home’s 9,150 square feet.
