Today the building holds many of the offices that support the White House, including that of the Vice President. Historic meetings have taken place here, including talks between Secretary of State Cordell Hull and Japanese emissaries after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Tours are available Saturday mornings by advance reservation.
