The one-story brick Colonial Revival building has four original 32-light display windows, original paired eight-light wood and glass doors, with wooden surround and broken pediment over the door . The building has a brick parapet, stone cornice with ornamentation, and stone window lintels. Sometime between the 1960s and 1980s (records differ), a new post office was built and the facility was sold and converted to a furniture store.
