Post Office – De Queen AR

Description

The De Queen Post Office was constructed in 1940 with Treasury Department funds. The Waymarking site for the post office explains that: “The DeQueen Post Office …has a similar look to many of the Treasury Department post office buildings. This is a one-story tan brick building which is square, with a hipped roof covered with composition shingles…” It also draws our attention to the concrete cornerstone to the left of the post office entrance that reads:

James A. Farley
Postmaster General
John M. Carmody
Federal Works Administrator
W. Englebert Reynolds
Commissioner of Public Buildings
Louis A. Simon
Supervising Architect
Neal A. Melick
Supervising Engineer
1940
