STYLE: Colonial Revival

The United States Post Office building was constructed by the Postal Service in 1936.  Colonial Revival architecture of the period reflected carefully researched designs based on historical precedent. How can you tell this building is a Colonial Revival? Notice the hip roof, round-headed openings with fan lights on the first floor, and rectangular, 12 light, double hung sash windows.
