24/7 Wall St.: America’s Richest Presidents

1. George Washington

Net worth: $525 million
In office: 1789 to 1797
1st president

His Virginia plantation, Mount Vernon, consisted of five separate farms on 8,000 acres of prime farmland, run by more than 300 slaves. His wife, Martha Washington, inherited significant property from her father. Washington made well more than subsequent presidents: his salary was 2% of the total U.S. budget in 1789.
