Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 22, 1977):
Designed in the "Ruskinian" or "Venetian" style, and an outstanding example of civic architecture, this is Withers' best known work (1874-77). It is exuberant by comparision with his other designs, which include a number of Gothic churches and the Gallaudet College main campus.
