Description

The historic post office building in Oxford, New York was “built in 1939-1940, and is one of a number of post offices in New York State designed by the Office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury Department under Louis A. Simon. It is a one story, five bay, steel frame structure on a raised, poured concrete foundation with a molded brick watercourse. It is square in shape, with a slate covered hipped roof in the Colonial Revival style. The interior features a 1941 mural by Mordi Gassner titled “Family Reunion on Clark Island: Spring 1791.” It is located within the Oxford Village Historic District.”
