Richard Cote, curator of the Department of the Treasury, talked about the history of the United States Treasury Building in Washington, D.C., which was constructed between 1836 and 1869 and is located beside the White House at 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue. A long-term restoration project was begun in 1986. He gave a behind-the-scenes tour of some restored spaces including a suite of rooms that has served as the office of Treasury secretaries since 1910, portraits of Treasury secretaries, the ornate West Dome, and the gold gilding that had once been painted over and forgotten. This is the second half of a two-part program. close
