The Thomas Jefferson Tower opened to the public in 1929 and celebrated the opening with a week-long gala. The ornate marble entrance hall and the large ballroom were its most impressive features. Over time, the building has hosted two Presidents and many other dignitaries. Unfortunately, in 1980 and 1981, devastating fires damaged the building and forced it to close for a period of time. In 2014 an investment group headed by Brian Beshara of New Orleans bought the building and transformed it into apartments and beautiful event spaces.
