Building 86 is currently the Shipyard Main Administrative Building housing the offices of the Shipyard Commander. In August/September 1905 it was the site of the signing of a treaty ending the Russo-Japanese War. The envoys of Russia and Japan were invited by President Theodore Roosevelt, an ardent naval enthusiast, to Portsmouth in an attempt to bring peace to the two warring nations. The Treaty of Portsmouth was signed on September 5, 1905, and in recognition of his leadership, President Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
