THE EISENHOWER EXECUTIVE OFFICE BUILDING, #15 in Collection

Next door to the White House, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) commands a unique position in both our national history and architectural heritage. Designed by Supervising Architect of the Treasure, Alfred B. Mullen, the EEOB was from 1871 to 1888 to house the growing staff of the State, War, and Navy Departments. The Eisenhower Executive Office Building is considered one of the best examples of French Second Empire architecture in the United States. In bold contrast to many of the somber classical revival buildings in Washington, the EEOB's ornately elegant style epitomizes the optimism and exuberance of the of the Post-Civil War period in America.

In addition to the Vice President's office in the West Wing of the White House, the Vice President and his staff maintain a set of offices in the EEOB, which is located next to the West Wing on the White House premises.
