Built in the Beaux-Arts style, the building incorporates elements of Gothic, Renaissance, and French Neoclassical architecture. Visitors to the venue will notice the striking white columns at the front of the building. The magnificence of their design, and the sense of order and symmetry they help to communicate, are all characteristic features of the Beaux-Arts school. For many decades after its completion, the building was the largest post office in the region. Renovation work was begun in 2016, and in January 2017, the building was officially reopened as a wedding and events venue. Today, The Historic Post Office strives to honor its past even as it helps couples look forward to the future. This commitment is expressed by the venue’s determination to offer couples a blank slate for their celebration. A blank slate is both a tool of the past and a symbol of unbounded possibility. The interior of the building is certainly able to accommodate a variety of celebrations. The building is equipped to seat up to 250 guests; the capacity can be expanded to 400 for a standing-only event. The interior of the venue features hardwood floors and white-painted brick. A beautiful wrought iron staircase leads to the mezzanine. Couples are welcome to decorate the venue according to their own wishes, though items and hangings that may damage the building are strictly forbidden.
