Description

The Lakeview Station post office was constructed by the Treasury sometime between 1933-1937. The date on the cornerstone is too worn to read, but Henry Morgenthau, Jr. (whose name does appear on the stone was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by FDR in 1933, and a WPA mural was installed in the building in 1937.
