The Lincoln Park Post Office is a post office located at 1335 Southfield Road in Lincoln Park, Michigan. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]

History[edit]

The building was constructed by the Henry Dattner Co., for a final cost of $80,000.[2] The design of this building, created by supervising architect of the treasury Louis A. Simon, was used for a number of other post offices in the state of Michigan. The Lincoln Park Post Office was dedicated on August 5, 1939.[2]

The building is now the home of the Lincoln Park Historical Museum.[2]

Description[edit]

The Lincoln Park Post Office is a one-story building built of tan brick.[2] Stone carvings over the entryway represent three modes of mail transportation: air, rail, and ship. The lobby originally housed a mural, Hauling in the Nets, by Zoltan Sepeshy. The mural is now located in the Marine Museum on Beaver Island.
