This post office complex which includes a large loading dock and a shop for repair of postal vehicles was built in 1938 and takes up 3/4 of a block. It was a project of the Public Works Administration Public Building Program that was created to help local economies and workers during this time period. Inside the post office is a set of murals that were created as part of the WPA Federal Arts Program by artist Carl Morris.

The coordinates take you to the front steps of the post office where a US Army Engineers Benchmark is located on the landing just to the right of the entrance.

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.
