Longworth House Office Building


by USDAgov

"Second House"

Named after former Speaker of the House, Nicholas Longworth of Ohio, the Longworth House Office Building (also known as "LHOB") was constructed in order to alleviate the overcrowding in the Cannon House Office Building. The venue was authorized in 1931, the same year of Longworth's passing. It is the smallest of the four office buildings for the United States House of Representatives and houses a large assembly room currently used by the Ways and Means Committee. The LHOB can be found south of the Capitol, at Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street SouthEast.
