Inscription.
During the 1790s, when Philadelphia was the capital of the United States, a large two-story brick building on this site housed the office of the Secretary of the Treasury.

Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary, presided over the largest executive department created by Congress under the Constitution. His bold fiscal policies created political controversy, but also a solid financial foundation for the new government.
