The Offices of the Secretary of the Treasury and the Register of the Treasury were responsible for the disposition of the public domain from the time of the establishment of the Federal Government until 1812. In 1812 the General Land Office was established as a Bureau with the Treasury Department to superintend and execute all transactions involving public lands except the work of surveying and mapping. In 1849 the General Land Office was transferred to the Department of the Interior. The functions of the Office were to supervise the survey, management, and disposition of the public domain and generally to execute all laws relating to public lands. In 1946 the General Land Office was consolidated with the Grazing Service of the Department of the Interior to form the Bureau of Land Management.
