Did You Know?: The History of the USTR Winder Building


The Winder Building, home to the Washington D.C. headquarters of the U.S. Trade Representative, has a long history beyond being the birthplace and enforcement grounds of much of America’s trade policy. In addition to being Washington’s first ‘skyscraper’ when it opened for business in 1848, it was also the place where Judge Advocate General Joseph Holt coordinated the search for President Abraham Lincoln's assassins!
