Young, Ithiel Town, and John Norris. The federal buildings they designed remained important fixtures on the urban scene for many years, and indeed, some of them have survived to the late twentieth century. The custom houses of this era were constructed in the great seaport cities as well as in smaller merchantile strongholds and resembled Greek temples near the waterfront. One of the first buildings of this new crop of federal buildings was the New York custom house. ”13 Architect and engineer Ithiel Town wrote to Secretary McLane describing the design for the new custom house in New York City that he had prepared with architect Alexander Jackson Davis.

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Mills (1781–1855) was one of the first American-born architects. Mills served as an apprentice to James Hoban on the President’s House in 1801 and later to Benjamin Henry Latrobe on the Capitol and other projects. He established an independent architectural practice in Philadelphia in 1809; from this base he designed buildings in Philadelphia, Richmond, and Baltimore. In 1815, he moved to Baltimore and established an enormously successful practice. Mills was invited back in 1820 to his home state where he served as “Acting Commissioner” of the state Board of Public Works (later renamed Superintendent of Public Buildings), a position that made him responsible for the design and construction of all state and district public buildings.

The management of the booming national building program required the consolidation of the civilian architectural functions of the federal government. The increased scope of the federal program is reflected in the numbers. Prior to 1850, it was estimated that the federal government had built or purchased forty-one custom houses and 39 40 architects to the nation marine hospitals. 1 These buildings included custom houses, courthouses, post offices, marine hospitals, mints, a miscellany of territorial buildings, an appraisers store, and an assay office.
