Eisenhower Building


This was originally the Old Executive Office Building, a National Historic Landmark, and was built between 1871 and 1888. Designed by Alfred B. Mullet the building housed the Departments of State, War, and Navy. Much of the interior was designed using fireproof cast-iron structural and decorative elements. But the building became seen as inefficient and was nearly demolished in 1957. Since 1981, major renovations have been carried out and a plan developed for the building's continued use. Today, the building houses various agencies such as the Office of the Vice President, the Office of Management and Budget and the National Security Council. In 2002, the Old Executive Office Building was officially rededicated as the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
