Post Office (former) – Freehold NJ

Description

Constructed by the Treasury in 1934. The building was expanded in 1957-62. The post office moved to a new facility in 1991, and this building is now the Monmouth County Veterans Memorial Building and home to the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office.

The post office originally contained a New Deal mural by Gerald Foster. The mural now hangs in the Monmouth County Public Library.
