United States Census Bureau Headquarters (former) – Suitland MD

Description

This large office building in the Suitland Federal Center –also known as Federal Office Buildings #3 – was constructed by the Public Building Administration (a branch of the Federal Works Agency) in 1941-1942 to be the headquarters of the U.S. Census Bureau, which remained in the building until 2007.

Unfortunately, due to deterioration, the building was demolished a few years after that.
