Description 

Erected in 1833-38, this building is probably the least-altered example of a noted architect's monumentally-scaled public building in the Greek Revival style. Though the timber interior was damaged by fire in 1857, the granite exterior walls and Doric portico survived, and interior reconstruction generally followed original plans. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 30, 1970
