Long Description:
The Post Office was here from 1890 until 1904 when it moved to 119 East Main. This would make this building the second Post Office. This town has done a remarkable job of identifying its former Post Offices.

This is a 2-story masonry building constructed for A. H. Sherman by E. M. Harvey in 1889. The federal government moved its post office in Anamosa to this building in 1890. "A. H. Sherman, who was to be the owner, accompanied contractor E. M. Harvey and E. F. Bickel to Davenport to inspect the different designs of architecture." Mr. Rairdin radically altered this building circa 1978 for use as a photography studio. The remodeling included cover-up materials, cast concrete arches, and vertical metal siding. As a result, it should be evaluated as a circa 1978 building and noncontributing to the historic district.

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.
