This beautiful building was designed by Ralph Wyckoff to house San Jos?'s Main Post Office. It was built as a W.P.A. project in 1933 and is a prime example of Depression-Era federal construction. The terra cotta work on the building's exterior is particularly fine. Although the Main Post Office has since been moved, this building continues to serve as the downtown branch post office.
