Post Office – Christiansburg VA

Description

The Christiansburg Post Office is located at the main intersection of the town of Christiansburg, Virginia.  It was completed in 1936 and built from funds allocated to the US Treasury Dept.  In the mid-2000s it was targeted for closure by the federal government.  However, effort by local, state and congressional leaders derailed that effort and the Post Office remains open today.  The successful effort to maintain the building was in part a function of its designation as a Virginia Historical Landmark.  The exterior and interior plan of the building is very similar to other Post Offices of the era, including the one in Blacksburg that was built in the same time period.
