Post Office Extension – Newark NY

Description

The historic post office in Newark, New York “was designed and built in 1911–1913 and is one of a number of post offices in New York State designed by the Office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury Department, James Knox Taylor. The original, main block is a 1-story, five-by-three-bay building clad in stucco and executed in the Classical Revival style. The large rear wing was added to the building in 1938–1939.”

The late 1930s New Deal extension was funded by the federal Treasury Department.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, the building is still in use today.
