U.S. Post Office

-A A +A
2000, SFCS, Inc. 380 W. Main St.

The long and broad flight of stairs that leads up in stages to the square pyramidal-roofed corner portico of the large red brick box of a building gives dignity to conducting postal business. Long banks of windows light the two outer sides of the building and ornamentation consists primarily of blue post office signage.
