The following entry appears in the official Shipyard Log of June 19, 1876: "A large carved Eagle (wood) was placed on the pediment of the office building today."
No information is available as to the name of the artist, or the occasion for the installation, but it is assumed it was in connection with the centennial of the United States.
For 105 years the eagle sat on top of building 47 through all kinds of weather, before being removed for restoration in 1985. The old bird was badly deteriorated and restoration was a long, tedious process, but the nearly 7-foot eagle has been magnificently rebuilt and is displayed in front of the current Administration Building. The pictorial history of the eagle is revealed in the surrounding photos.
