The Federal Building an important symbol of the end of Reconstruction in Nashville. President Hayes promised Nashville a new Federal Building in his 1876 campaign, and he was present to lay the cornerstone in 1877.
It is an outstanding example of Victorian Gothic architecture, with some of the finest stonework in the city, excellent carved friezes, and iron light standards which are considered unique.
A tall tower with a pyramidal roof, flanked by two hipped-roof wings, dominates the front elevation.
It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
In recent years, the building was turned over to the local government, which leases it to a developer who has thoroughly renovated it and subleases it as office space.
