History and Architecture

The land where the Halleck Federal Building stands was conveyed to the government in 1891, and in 1983 the building was named for Charles Abraham Halleck, who represented the 2nd District of Indiana in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1935 to 1969. Designed in the Art Deco style, the two-story building features Indiana limestone and carved ornamentation on its exterior and marble and metal details within its lobby. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
