Old Federal Building (Post Office)

This building, designed by Thomas Fuller (architect of Ottawa’s Peace Tower and many post offices throughout Canada), was constructed of red sandstone atop a limestone foundation. It served as the post office/customs house until 1970 and has been converted into offices and apartments. During Doors Open, the main floor offices will be open. Ask about the clock, added in 1913.
