The United States Post Office and Court House was a federal building of the United States built in Burlington, Vermont in 1870, under the supervision of architect Alfred B. Mullett. It served as a courthouse of the United States District Court for the District of Vermont from its construction until it was transferred to the state to become the Chittenden County Court House. The county moved its courthouse to a new location in 1975,[1] and the old courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1982, the local fire department's aging equipment not being able to save the building.[2]
