Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Indian Treaty Room (originally known as the Navy Department Library and Reception Room) is located in the East Wing of the Old Executive Office Building. It was designed by Richard von Ezdorf, Draftsman for the Supervising Architect of the Treasury. Completed in 1879, it cost more to construct than any other room in the building at about $33.50 per square foot (total $55,675.00). The room has been used as a library, but today is primarily used for meetings and receptions. The design of the room includes many nautical motifs - such as shells over the Italian and French marble panels; seahorses and dolphins in the cast iron railing at the second floor balcony; stars for navigation in the ceiling and the compass in the center of the floor.show more
