Capitol Hill

Cannon Office Building

The Cannon Office Building was constructed in 1908, in the Beaux-Arts style, by the architectural firm of Carrère and Hastings. It is the oldest of the Congressional office buildings, and one of the three buildings that have offices for Representatives. It, along with the similar Senate Office Building, were designed to complement but not distract from the Capitol and Library of Congress, with a simple classical facade. It is faced in white marble.
It is at the intersection of C St. SE, Independence, First St. SE, and New Jersey Avenue.
