1938, Louis A. Simon, Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury. 502 Adams Ave.

This post office shares the attributes of the Colonial Revival–styled versions designed under Simon’s supervision. The building is of fire-resistant steel-frame construction, with dark red wire-faced brick exterior walls and a minimal limestone coping trimmed with a slightly molded outer edge. Granite steps lead to the entrance, which is topped by a fanlight and surmounted by a keystone with a line of header brick forming a gentle arch. The functional interior is well maintained, in generally original condition.
