110-114 E. Jefferson. Post Office Building. 1942; 1962 renovation. Architect, unknown. Contractor, unknown. Contributing.
The Post Office Building is a long one story, multicolored, red brick commercial building with a flat parapet that is divided by the brick piers into three, aluminum framed storefront bays. The canvas awning currently runs the length of the building just below a plain parapet. 1962 plans and a permit by Pearce and Pearce (the same firm was working down the block as well on an addition to the library) are on file at city hall, showing the conversion of this from the post office to retail use. They show the interior changes and east storefront bay addition which was carefully blended with matching brick into the existing façade and simply added the east bay, corner pier, as well as a display window on the east side wall. These changes were made during the period of significance, and reflect the increased demands for retail spaces in the growing business district. The parking lot on the side of the building has historically been associated with this building since the construction of the post office and as such is a contributing feature in the district." ~ NRHP Nomination Form

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.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
