Glenville Bratenahl Station Post Office – Cleveland OH

Description

Cleveland’s historic Glenville Bratenahl Station post office—then known as Station H—was constructed in 1935-6 with Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds. Designed by R. Stanley-Brown, the building is still in service.

“This postal station serves a rapidly growing commercial district in the northeastern part of Cleveland and also the village of Bratenahl, an exclusive residential area lying along Lake Erie. Its postal receipts approximate $133,000 annually.

The lobby is 18 by 51 feet, has a terrazzo floor, a low marble wainscot, and plaster walls and ceiling. The exterior walls are light-red brick trimmed with artificial stone and the building is fire-proof except for the wood-plank roof. It was completed in March 1936 at a construction cost of $70,330.45. The P.W.A. allotment was $92,000.”
