Do You Know Anyone With an Elevator in Their Home?

The White House is an unusual home, but it's not the only home that features an elevator. Growing up I had a classmate whose ranch-style home had an elevator running from the main floor to the basement. I always suspected it was an escape route because her father was possibly a Mafioso. You needn't be a world leader or a criminal to own an elevator, though. Remember photographer Jay Maisel's 72-room bohemian dream house with its ornate copper elevator cage? Tell me: do you know anyone with an elevator in their home? Apartment buildings don't count.
