Yes, your community’s post office — a building that may once have been the symbolic heart of your community before email and Facebook existed and many of which are “architecturally distinctive, prominently located, and cherished as civic icons country”– could be endangered, due to the US Postal Service identifying almost 4,400 post offices, big and small, to close last year.
While some city officials and local preservationists have found new buyers or uses for some endangered post offices, the USPS has yet to provide sufficient “information and guidance” as to how they might be preserved and used.
