White house or pool house?

So, it has been said many times that the White House in Washington has been built using stones from Pučišća’s quarry. Some documentaries were also made depicting this legend. But, is it really true? The story goes like this: one Hungarian trader in the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire allegedly purchased three ships of Brač’ stone and then sold it to the United States of America, to be used for the building of the White House. However, there is no real evidence proving that such a stone is part of the White House. But, since we are very optimistic and lean more towards the story that says the second house in the complex was actually built with Brač stone, we will say – yes. There is some truth to this legend!
