The site of the investiture is Saint John Episcopal Church, 1525 H St NW, Washington, DC 20005. Called the "Church of the Presidents," every sitting president has attended the church at least once since it was built in 1816, starting with James Madison. With the exception of Richard Nixon, every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has attended spiritual services on Inauguration Day, many at St. John's. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. To read more, visit: https://stjohns-dc.org/.
