Description

The Treasury Department funded the construction of this post office, designed by Louis Simon, in 1936. It features a modern deco design with flat stone around the entryway, tall windows, and modern light fixtures flanking the entry. Above the windows towards the north and south sides of the front, there are propellers emphasizing the use of air mail. There is no mural in this post office.
