Post Office – Beacon NY

Description

The historic post office in Beacon, New York was constructed with Treasury Department funding as part of the New Deal. “Architects Charles Rosen and Gilbert Stanley Underwood produced a Colonial Revival style building in stone, a common building material for many early houses in the Hudson Valley.” The building, which was completed in 1937, houses a striking wraparound New Deal mural.
