Treasury Building Tours

As seen on the back of the United States’ ten dollar bill, the Treasury Building is a National Historic Landmark and home of the United States Department of the Treasury. Its construction began in 1836, designed by the same architect who planned the Washington Monument. With five stories of height, the structure is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. Statues of significant historic figures — including Alexander Hamilton, who was the first Secretary of the Treasury — surround the exterior. 

The East Colonnade features 30 columns carved from the same single piece of granite, standing at 36 feet tall. Additions were then made to the original wings, and after 33 years of construction was completed. Upon its opening it became one of the largest office buildings in the world. The Treasury Building is one of the United States’ oldest monuments and is said to have influenced the style of the monuments that came after it.

Practical Info

The Treasury Building can be found at Fifteenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., not far from The White House. It is open for guided tours on Saturdays, but reservations must be made well in advance.
