In 1931 the Old Post Office Building was moved about a block from its original site where the new Post Office now stands. The Old Post Office then served as a library, until 1974, and now serves as a private office building. It was built in 1906 and designed by James Knox Taylor, the Supervising Architect of the Treasury.[3]
