1935, Louis A. Simon, OSA. 401 N. 9th St.

This symmetrical brick box, typical of the small-town post offices of its time, has a broken pediment and urn topping the central entrance. It retains its tile floors, wain-scot, and most of the original wood-work and features a mural by W. Victor Higgins of Taos, New Mexico, The First Crossing at Rocky Ford.
