Description

“This 1935 U.S. Post Office is associated with the Depression era federal programs designed to provide public works employment and stimulate the economy. The Office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury Louis A. Simon designed the building. Architecturally, the post office is a good example of the “Starved Classical” style characteristic of many Depression-era public buildings. Notable features include the variegated red and orange brick, symmetrical composition, flat roof, large multi-light double-hung sash windows with gauged brick lintels and stone keystones, and double door entrance surmounted by a fanlight.”   (cityofsalida.com)

The building now houses a private business.
