The Frank Carlson Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse was constructed in 1977 and is situated on 2.4 acres adjacent to the downtown historic post office. Its four-story atrium entrance is graced by an unusual glass sculpture entitled The White Tornado, which is greatly enhanced by the light filtering in from a rooftop skylight.
