Description

The historic New Deal post office building in Bethesda MD – sometimes misattributed to the Works Progress Administration (WPA) – was constructed with Treasury Department funds in 1937.

The Neo-Georgian building was constructed out of native stone trucked in from Stoneyhurst Quarries on River Road… (www.bethesdamagazine.com)

The post office remained in use until 2012, when “faced with mounting financial difficulties, the USPS [United States Postal Service] closed it in 2012 and sold it for $4 million to the Donohoe Companies.”

The New Deal mural from the post office has been restored and was relocated to Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center in 2013.
