Louisville MS Post OfficeOriginal building
Project type: Civic Facilities, Federal Facilities, Post Offices
Contractors: Dye & MullingsView Project in a Separate Window
The post office was built by the Treasury Department in 1935 in a Colonial Revival style.
The post office was enlarged with an addition in 1989-90 by architects Samuel “Sambo” Mockbee, Coker, and Tom Howorth. As so many small communities have chosen to replace their historic depression-era post offices, it is of note that Louisville chose a preservation path to keep the post office, and its “art for the people” available to the community at large.
