    About five years ago we purchased this post office and the vacant lot next door. We won the Michigan Historic Preservation award two years ago for our preservation and restoration of this iconic post office. Today it is leased to Westborn Market and is thriving in downtown Plymouth. The mural was restored to its former glory after we purchased as it had water damage from a leaky roof.
