Executive Building – Salem OR

Description

“This building to the west of the Capitol Building was built as Salem’s Post Office at a cost of $310,000, and was dedicated on October 16, 1937. It was the only marble post office west of the Mississippi River beside Denver’s. It served as Salem’s post office until 1976, when a new building on 25th Street took its place (until 2012, when it was decided to cease operations at that location). Today it serves as the State of Oregon Executive Building.”
