Filming in historic buildings
We want to encourage the use of our historic buildings in film and television productions, to showcase and support this legacy by creating opportunities for the public to experience these buildings through film. All revenue earned through this program is reinvested in our historic inventory helping to fund important conservation and rehabilitation projects not otherwise possible. Filming and other special event space rentals help support federal preservation goals by generating revenue to keep historic federal buildings occupied, in good repair, and economically viable while contributing to their use and enjoyment by the public. Using these locations goes a long way in promoting, protecting, and preserving these national treasures.
Arranging filming is easy. Take a look at our full building list [XLSX - 16 KB] and contact the appropriate building manager with questions.
