New, 28 comments

Mark Twain is said to have called it the ugliest building in America. President Harry S Truman, called it the country's "greatest monstrosity." More recently, this monstrosity is considered a cherished relic from a bygone era. The block-long, Renaissance revival Eisenhower Executive Office Building was declared a national historic landmark in 1971, almost 100 years after its construction. [PoPville] - Michelle Goldchain
