U.S. Post Office
1915, James A. Wetmore, Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury. 130 Coleman St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Renovations after the post office moved out in 1967 have preserved the character of the two-story, red brick Classical Revival building. The six columns of the porch have greatly simplified capitals consisting of two rows of acanthus leaves, without volutes or other forms.
