1909 building is well maintained

Spokane’s historic Post Office building was erected in 1909. It was designed by James Knox Taylor of the U.S. Department of Treasury. The classical design is reminiscent of a Greek temple. After the building opened, as many as 2,600 people a day would pass through its doors. The original post office boxes can be seen just inside the entry. Most of the original quarter-sawn oak woodwork and marble remain, along with the original glass in counter windows. A second-floor courtroom at the rear of the building is stunning, but seldom seen by the public.
