The original building here was designed in the Romanesque revival style by Mifflin Bell, the supervising architect of the U.S. Treasury Department. When he resigned as construction was just beginning, his replacement added bolder details. A new wing was added to house the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and U.S. Attorney’s offices during the Depression era. Cadman Plaza, officially called the S. Parkes Cadman Plaza, was named for a Congregationalist minister who became well known as a radio preacher.
