Stuttgart City Hall (U.S. Post Office)

-A A +A
1931, James A. Wetmore, Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury; 1966 addition. 302 S. Maple St.

Stuttgart’s City Hall occupies a building that was the town’s post office until the postal service moved to a new building in 2002. Constructed of red brick, the one-story Colonial Revival building has a classical portico of four limestone columns and a pediment outlined with dentils. Limestone is used for the sills, lintel, and keystones of the rectangular windows and for the swag decoration above them. The design suits the building’s adopted civic function well, giving a time-honored classical face to city business. The two-bay addition of 1966 matches the building in height and design.
