  • Architecturally interesting. This next to the White House and clear that you turn it to see. Outside of that, it is one building. Clear its architecture and size are attractive, but it is everything. From the side of Presidents Park has a type angel statue.

  • This is the building where most of the White House staff works. Expect to enjoy it as your waking around the White House. This is a walkby attraction not something to take a tour of.  more »

  • The Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB)—formerly known as the Old Executive Office Building (OEOB) and even earlier as the State, War, and Navy Building—is a U.S. government building situated just west of the White House in the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. Maintained by the General Services Administration, it is occupied by the Executive Office of the President, including the Office of the Vice President of the United States. Located on 17th Street NW, between Pennsylvania Avenue and State Place, and West Executive Drive, the building was commissioned by President Ulysses S. Grant. It was built between 1871 and 1888, on the site of the original 1800 War/State/Navy Building[3] and the White House stables, in the French Second Empire style. While the building exterior received substantial criticism at first, it has since been designated as a National Historic Landmark. It was for years the world's largest office building, with 566 rooms and about ten acres of floor space. Many White House employees have their offices in the EEOB In 1802, the Washington Jockey Club lay at the rear of what is now the site of Decatur House at H Street and Jackson Place, crossing Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue to Twentieth Street—today the Eisenhower Executive Office Building—having been completed only four years earlier in 1798, as the stonemasons had finished the brick and painters applied white paint to the President's House
  • One of the best examples of Second Empire architecture in the United States. Make sure to take a look at this building while en route to the White House.
  • The architecture is amazing to look at but it was closed off from visitors
  • What a beautiful building. Absolutely amazing. If you love architecturally beautiful building, definately come to DC to see all these old school buildings.
  • "The Star Spangled Banner" Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
