Post Office – Lancaster CA

Description

The Lancaster post office is a trim, one-story Art Moderne building of a familiar type of the post offices of the New Deal era – but with a distinctive tower at the NE corner.  It was built in 1941 by the US Treasury Department, as indicated on the cornerstone.  The interior is virtually unchanged over time and includes a striking mural on the west wall.
