Here's an interesting article about connections between Freemasonry and the building of the US White House. I'll post the links, since the article itself is rather long to include here. The architect of the building was an Irish Freemason with links to Kilwinning Lodge. I was particularly noting the addition, after the partial burning of the White House at the end of the War of 1812, of two porticoes to the building that seem to be based on classical temples. I'm curious to hear other reactions.
