Long Description:

This is a typical post office surrounded by other government brick buildings, all equally old. I think the post office is built in the Colonial Revival style. There is a date stone at the bottom of the building, to the right of the stairs bearing the construction date of 1937. The usual governmental names are incised on the huge building date stone. The supervising architect was Louis Simon. Most of Simon's buildings, notably these post office buildings, were designed in the Colonial Revival style. The stone is flush with the surrounding brick. The cornerstone reads:

Henry Morgenthau, Jr.
Secretary of the Treasury
James A. Farley
Postmaster General
Louis A. Simon
Supervising Architect
Neal A Melick
Supervising Engineer

1937

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable. If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
