Post Presidential Homes

Prior to moving into the White House, presidents grow up in small towns and big cities raised in all different types of homes with their families. Some homes are lavish, while others are modest but they all help shape presidents for their future endeavors. It's the homes that they live in after their presidency that really show off their style. After their term in the White House, many presidents move back to their hometowns and reconnect with their community, while others, like former President Bill Clinton who uprooted to New York, take to new ground.

Before he was elected for his first term as President, Barack Obama and his family lived in this stately, $1.6 million brick house in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. As the election neared, the Secret Service set up barriers and started asking neighbors for ID. Obama is expected to return to the house on occasion, in addition to trips to Hawaii, where he grew up.
