A plaque on the floor marks the location of President John Quincy Adams’ desk in Statuary Hall, which is where the House of Representatives once met.

On this Presidents Day, Colorado Matters revisits conversations about the Founding Fathers and the health of a new nation. Plus, how living overseas influenced the vision John and Abigail Adams had for America. Then, confidantes on the White House kitchen staff. And the evolving role of the First Lady.
