This New Deal post office was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938. It is also the site of William Caffee’s 1941 mural, “Chesapeake Fisherman.”

Researcher Frank da Cruz notes that the post office’s Colonial Revival design is by Louis A. Simon who was the Supervising Architect in the U.S. Department of the Treasury at the time. The Engineer was Neal A. Melick.
