Post Office

-A A +A
1909. West side of Main St., south of Colorado 96

This single-story brick structure, now stuccoed, with flat roof and entrance in a cut corner, was built as a bank, which failed in 1927. It became the post office in the 1960s. Shallow, blind arches top a pair of large windows in the street facade, and a decorative, corbeled cornice runs across the parapet.
