The Bulletin Building

717 6th Street, NW

The Bulletin Building was erected in 1928, thanks to the design of architects Rodier and Kundzin, to house the offices and printing operation of the United Publishing Company. The Bulletin Building is significant as one of the city’s better examples of industrial architecture with its four Art Deco bas relief limestone panels that depict the trade of the company within and instantly tie the physical fabric of the building to its 60-year history as a print shop. The building itself may be one of the best and most recognizable symbols of the printing and publishing trades, formerly so important to the city’s economy and function.
