Easton MD Post Office
“It would be difficult to design a small public building better fitted than this to the native architectural traditions of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
The plan is typical of the ‘one man’ post-office type which can be managed by the postmaster alone.
The exterior walls are red face brick trimmed with wood, the roof is covered with slate, and the cupola is wood. The construction is fireproof up to the roof which is of the slow-burning type.
It was completed in July 1936. The construction cost was $48,234 and the project cost $63,427.”
