Washington Av­enue build­ings have gone through many changes in

past 100 years. The Post Of­fice was re­placed with the cur­rent build­ing in 1930. The Lib­erty Build­ing and Pren­der­gast Build­ing con­tin­ued to house ten­ants, in­clud­ing the Red Cross Knit­ting and Sewing Rooms dur­ing World War II. Both were de­mol­ished to make way for a short-lived Hil­ton Ho­tel in the 1970s, which was de­mol­ished to build the Park Plaza of­fice build­ing in the 1980s. The space was re­made in the late 1990s by ar­chi­tect Peter Bohlin, who de­signed the cur­rent Wil­liam J. Nealon Fed­eral Court­house.
