Old U.S. Post Office

113 E. 8th Street

Circa 1931. Buff-colored brick offset with terra cotta and marble trim was used to construct the Georgian Revival-style post office, the only example of this architectural style in Georgetown. The dormer windows, roofline balustrade, classical pilasters, round keystone arched windows, and handsome broken scroll pediment over the entrance are typical Georgetown Revival details. In 1895, a frame structure on this site housed a livery stable and undertaker.
