It was designed by noted architect John Russell Pope and built in 1928. It is a rectangular, three story brick building with a symmetrical thirteen bay facade. The east facade features a projecting, pedimented three bay pavilion. The formal entrance is located at the center of the pavilion and consists of a portico composed of flanking pilasters and columns with composite capitals, a broad entabulature and a segmental pediment. The building is topped by a hipped roof with a two stage octagonal wooden cupola topped by a weather vane. The building has Colonial Revival style detailing.[2]
