Eisenhower Executive Office Building (19/365)

One of my favorite buildings in all of DC… I think it is absolutely amazing.

The Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) was formerly known as the Old Executive Office Building (OEOB), is located next to the West Wing, and houses a majority of offices for White House staff. Originally built for the State, War and Navy Departments between 1871 and 1888, the EEOB is an impressive building that commands a unique position in both our national history and architectural heritage.

Designed by Supervising Architect of the Treasury Alfred Mullett, the granite, slate and cast iron exterior makes the EEOB one of America’s best examples of the French Second Empire style of architecture. It took 17 years for Mullett’s masterpiece to finally be completed.

It is located on 17th Street, N.W., between Pennsylvania Avenue and New York Avenue, and West Executive Drive in Washington, D.C.
