Date of Construction: 1870

This brick two-part commercial block has a rectangular footprint. The front elevation is four bays wide. Defining the bays are the first-story pilasters and the second-story fenestration. The first story features the original cast-iron four-part storefront. The storefront includes two wood-framed plate glass windows with fixed transoms. The display windows rest on the original wood bulkhead, which retains its historic decorative moldings. The storefront entrance occupies the second bay from the north and contains a historic three-quarter light panel wood door and transom window. The original recessed entrance to the second floor occupies the north end bay and retains the original fixed transom. Filling the upper-story openings are non-historic, single one-over-one light, double-hung windows. Additional character-defining features include the original pressed metal, bracketed cornice; upper-story cast-iron window hoods and sills; and cast-iron entrance step and floor.

This building retains a high degree of architectural integrity and clearly conveys its historic associations. It is a contributing element to the historic district.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
