Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building
1 Federal Drive
Fort Snelling, MN 55111-4080
The Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building is located south of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. The building is bordered by highways 55, 5, 62 (Crosstown Expressway), and the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.
Officially dedicated in 1969, the building houses the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Homeland Security, and various agencies within the Department of Defense.
Due to the building's renovation work, however, many of these agencies have moved to Norman Pointe II, a 10-story leased office building in Bloomington, Minnesota.
