Historical and Architectural Features In 1966, New Albany's Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse was built to replace the city's original U.S. Post Office and Federal Building built in 1887. The current building's repetitive arches and the portico surrounding it are said to pay homage to the steamboats associated with New Albany's history. The building was officially renamed the Lee H. Hamilton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse on October 15, 2001.
