The historic New Deal post office building in Woodland, California was constructed as a Treasury Department “project on land purchased from the Gallup family. The building is Spanish Colonial Revival in design with massive corner blocks joined by a central gabled front entrance. The smooth plaster finish is accented with decorative Spanish tile. A segmented arch spanning a transom window crowns the entrance, which is fronted by several brick steps.” (“Woodland Architecture” folder, Yolo County Archive)
Construction of the building is sometimes mis-attributed to the WPA.
