East India House was the London headquarters of the East India Company, from which much of British India was governed until the British government took control of the Company’s possessions in India in 1858. It was located in Leadenhall Street in the City of London. The first East India House on the site was an Elizabethan mansion, previously known as Craven House, which the Company first occupied in 1648. This was completely rebuilt in 1726–9; and further remodelled and extended in 1796–1800. It was demolished in 1861.
