The U.S. Government Building was designed by the firm
of Windrim & Edbrooke, of Washington D.C. The Government
Building served in part as a museum of American history, housing
important objects spanning from the time of the pilgrims, 1620,
all the way to the late 1800s. Various government agencies had
displays that illustrated the social, political, and ecological
landscape of America.
