Building History

The Mellon Auditorium, named for Andrew W. Mellon, the financier and Secretary of Commerce under Republican administrations from 1921-1932, served as a linking building between the Interstate Commerce Commission and the Department of Labor (now U.S. Customs Service) Buildings. Large assemblies of state were meant to be staged in the Mellon Auditorium; its templar facade and elaborate pediment sculpture suggested the importance of its purpose. The building is a central part of the Federal Triangle Historical District in Washington, D.C.
