Post Office (former) Renovations – Gaffney SC

Description

The historic former post office Gaffney, South Carolina was constructed in 1912. However, the building received a remodeling (and, possibly, an all-new addition to the rear)—a New Deal project—that was completed in 1940. The building, often referred to as the “grand dame” by locals, now houses Gaffney’s Visitor Center as well as art studios.
