The Longview Main Post Office is an integral part of the Longview Civic Center. The building is classically influenced, Art Deco in style and faced in red brick and sandstone. Like the other buildings facing the Park, it is compatible in scale, featuring classical aspects of organization, form and elements of entry. The parapet end gables and slate roof of its frontal wing are similar to the library. The interior features a double-height lobby with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, red and black inlaid marble floors, and walnut paneled walls inset with a gold leaf pattern. Constructed as a Depression Era Public Works project, the Post Office was built to aid the local economy during a period of national emergency.
Good to know it hasn't been torn down or redecorated!
