The New State Office Building built in the late 1930s set the Colonial Revival tone for the rest of the state government buildings in its vicinity. Baltimore architect Hopkins, with assistance from fellow Colonial Revivalist Fowler, drew inspiration from a variety of eighteenth-century sources including the Chase-Lloyd House and the Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis. This large institutional building was built on College Avenue after several other sites were considered and rejected, most notably a Randall Court site due to a preservation battle to save the Bordley-Randall House from demolition.
