Store (Post Office)

-A A +A
Post Office
c. 1870. 12–14 Mill St.

This nicely preserved brick store building, once the village post office, has a corbeled cornice and what appears to be a pair of cast iron shop fronts. But they are of wood. If cast iron often imitated stone, the imitation was sometimes reversed, with stone and (more rarely) wood taking their attenuation and detailing from cast iron.
