George Washington wasn’t just inaugurated at Federal Hall. His second inauguration took place in Philadelphia, held in the Senate Chamber of Congress Hall on March 4, 1793 for his second four-year term. This was the first inauguration to take place in Philadelphia, which was the nation’s capital at the time. Additionally, Washington delivered what remains the shortest inaugural address to this day at 135 words.
