THE PATENT OFFICE is the popular name for the seat of the Department of the

Interior, of which the Patent Office is a bureau. It is of the Doric style of Greek
architecture and stands on the ground set aside by L'Enfant, the French engineer
who planned Washington, for a national church." Its construction has been piece-
meal, following the growth of patent business. In 1867 it was finished at a cost
of $2,347,011.65.
