The Naval Observatory was integrated in 1893, and Congress reconditioned your home for the vice president in 1974. Former Vice President Walter Mondale was the very first second-in-command to inhabit the home, according to the White House. Vice Presidents George H.W. Bush, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney, Joe Biden, and Mike Pence have all lived here. Harris, who was a California senator prior to ascending to the vice presidency, has a home in Washington, D.C., so its unclear whether she will still be living there while she waits for the work to be finished on the Naval Observatory home.
Vice President Kamala Harris wont instantly move into the vice presidents residence at the Naval Observatory in northwest Washington, D.C., that is traditionally used by vice presidents, an aide for Harris told CBS News. The assistant stated that the delay is because of the requirement for some repair work to the house.

Due to the fact that Harris will not be remaining at your house at One Observatory Circle instantly, it will “permit repair work to the home that are more quickly performed with the house unoccupied,” the assistant stated. Chimney liners need to be replaced and other household upkeep will be carried out, now that Vice President Pence and his household have actually vacated.
