The United States Railroad Retirement Board Building (USRRB) was constructed as the America Fore Office Building in 1923 by the Continental Insurance Company. In 1942, the building became the property of the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, and now houses one of the few federal governmental agencies headquartered outside of Washington D.C.
Stylistically, the building is understated and is not a significant example of any one architectural style. Its massiveness, enhanced by its monolithic masonry walls and irregular shape, are the building's strongest features.
