Post Office (former) Extension – Greenwich CT

Description

The historic post office in downtown Greenwich, Connecticut was originally constructed in 1916-7. A rear extension was added to the building to as part of a New Deal project completed in 1938 with federal Treasury Department funds. The building is now privately owned.

An example of New Deal artwork created for the facility has since been relocated.
