Post Office (former) – Roxboro NC

Description

The historic post office building in Roxboro, North Carolina was constructed during the Great Depression with Treasury Department funds. The building, which opened in 1937, has since been re-purposed.

A New Deal mural still hangs in the lobby of the building, which now houses the Piedmont Community College Educational Opportunity Center.
