The federal agency responsible for instituting America's farm-related policies is housed in two distinctive buildings. The older building is on the north side of Independence Avenue. Construction on the white marble building began in 1905. Of particular interest are the cornices on the north side depicting forests, grains, flowers and fruits. The newer building, built between 1930 and 1936, lies on the other side of Independence Avenue. The Agriculture Visitors Information Center (Room 103A in the Administration Building) offers changing exhibits.
