NRHP Nomination form

"Old Post Office Building (Masonic Lodge #227) - 107 South Mays Street. Built in 1878. Contributing. This two-story building has ashlar limestone on the front and a handsome corbeled brick parapet above. The first-floor openings have round arches, while the openings on the second floor are segmentally arched.

The Masonic Lodge #227 Building (#25)
The Masonic Lodge #227 built the structure at 107 South Mays in 1878. The two-story, stone-masonry building was apparently built to house the lodge meeting space on the second floor while the first floor served as lease space. The fine quality of the brickwork detailing of this building represents an imaginative interpretation of the Italianate style, and contrasts with the austere limestone walls. One long-term tenant was the United States Post Office. To this date the Masons continue to meet in the building. The first floor is vacant now."

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.
