Federal Building

This fabulous building is a marble-fronted, beaux-arts-style building that replicates a state building in Havana, Cuba. It opened in 1915 as a federal post office. It boasts a central, three-bay, corinthian-order portico with central pediment, set between lower, three-bay, doric porticoes, all with balustraded parapets and coffered bronze ceilings. This remarkable building pays tribute to the Greek temple.
