Former Dixon Post Office

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 August 2019 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The city’s former post office, built in 1911, is an ornate Greek revival structure with portico and ionic columns outside, and terrazzo floors, Bedford stone, marble and granite features inside. Since its closing, a senior center occupies the downstairs, and the “Post House Ballroom” is located upstairs, an elegant venue for reunions, weddings, anniversary parties and more.

Public buildings were such a source of pride back in the day. The Olympia post office is in a more modern but definitely ugly building. A beautiful capture.
