Finished by the architect’s son, Cass Gilbert, Jr., after his father’s death, this building is more than just a courthouse. It originally housed the U.S. District Attorney’s offices, the U.S. District Court, the Circuit Court of Appeals, and even a training center for the Treasury Department’s enforcers, all in a twenty-story office tower rising up from a five-story base to the stepped pyramid on the roof. The row of Corinthian columns at the entrance is angled in a gesture of neighborliness to the other courthouse next door.
