The Custom House and the Post Office building came about as a result of the growth of Georgetown that became famous in 1779 as the port of entry into America. When the name of the port changed to Washington DC port through a bill in 1864 to abolish Georgetown, the need for a permanent structure for the Custom House and Post office was designed thanks to Ammi Young and another architect from the Treasury Department.
