There are three entrance doors to the Members of Congress Room with carved oak lunettes over each by Charles Henry Niehaus. At the north door, the lunette contains a central cartouche with an owl and a figure of a seated youth on either side. The carved oak lunette over the south door duplicates the north door's lunette.
