The United States Custom House in New Orleans is one of the oldest and most important federal buildings in the southern United States and one of the major works of architecture commissioned by the federal government in the nineteenth century. Construction began on this monumental granite building in 1848 and was built over a period of 33 years. The grand marble hall in the center of the building is one of the finest Greek revival interiors in the United States. Roy Anderson Corp was awarded the task of renovating the first floor of the United States Customs House converting it into a museum and tenant space.
