Notes
Survey number HABS OH-2357
Significance: The Engineer's Building was the national headquarters of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. The BofLE was organized in 1855 and is the oldest railroad operating union in the country. The building was built in 1911, a time when railroad traffic and employment were nearing their peak and when Cleveland was in the front ranks of American industrial and transportation centers. The BofLE headquarters building was built as a statement about how far the brotherhood had come in 55 years and about its prospects for the future. Inclusion of retail, rental office and public auditorium space in the building made possible a public interaction with the brotherhood that was not common in American labor unions.
