Named after U.S. Senator Estes Kefauver, the building was designed by the Nashville firm of Marr and Holman in the Modern Style, and construction began in 1948.[3]

Once construction of the nearby Fred D. Thompson U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building is completed in 2021, the Courts and other Federal Offices will be moved to the newer building. The General Services Administration plans to maintain the building and house other federal agencies currently located throughout Nashville.[4]
