Post Office (former) – Doylestown PA

Description

“During the Depression, the federal government sought to boost the economy through public works, ranging from massive dams to local post offices.

Doylestown had outgrown its post office, located on East State Street at Printer’s Alley. In 1934, a new post office was built at South Main and West Ashland streets.”   (doylestown.patch.com)

A new post office building was constructed during the mid-1980s and a 1937 New-Deal mural, “William Markham Purchases Bucks County Territory” was moved thereto. The Depression-era post office is now privately owned.
