Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 30, 1970):
Constructed between 1873 and 1884, this is one of two surviving examples of the huge Federal buildings in the French Second Empire style designed by Alfred B. Mullet, Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury in the post Civil-War era. Along with the Old Executive Office Building in Washington, DC, this is representative of a style important in Federally sponsored architecture of the period.
