Old Post Office

-A A +A
1932. Southeast corner of Costilla County L.7 and 22.3

This small adobe structure on a concrete foundation is finished in textured stucco. The parapet around the flat roof has a curvilinear arc over the central entrance and stepped-up sections at the corners. The building is now in ruins but is far more noteworthy than its replacement.
