It was built in 1938 by the Office of the Supervising Architect under the direction of Louis A. Simon. It is a one-story, symmetrically massed building clad with random stone ashlar in the Colonial Revival style. The entrance is flanked by fluted, engaged Doric order columns and pilasters which support a simple entablature. The slate roof is topped by a square, flat topped cupola. The lobby features a 1941 mural by Harold Goodwin titled "Early Days of the Automobile."[2]
