Forestry Building – Laconia NH

Description

“The Federal Office Building in Laconia, New Hampshire, was designed by Louis A. Simon, Supervising Architect for the Public Works Branch of the Treasury Department’s Procurement Division. Conceived and built during the Depression era as the United States Forestry Building, the cornerstone for the building was laid in 1939, and the building was dedicated soon after in July 1940. The building, authorized under the New Deal’s colossal building program, is designed in a stripped Classical Revival style and is representative of one of several styles preferred by government architects in the 1930s.”
