Long Description:
The United States Post Office and Courthouse is located at 131 E. 12th Street and was constructed in 1933 with Treasury Department funding. This is a two- and three-story plus basement stone block building which faces north on 12th Street. Eight steps lead up to the double-door entrance. Block side walls with lanterns flank this staircase. The basement level is partially above ground, with no windows.

There are three bays, with the end bays projected from the center, and three stories in height. These end bays have multi-paned casement windows with designs engraved on the 3rd floor fascia.

Beneath the second floor windows are iron plates engraved with eagles.

The interior is beautiful, with terrazzo floors and wainscoting, with a beautiful curved terrazzo staircase leading to the second floor. The building is in excellent condition and still operated as a post office.
