The US Post Office–South Norwalk Main, also known as Norwalk Main Post Office, is located at 16 Washington Street in Norwalk, Connecticut. It is a single story steel and concrete structure, faced in limestone. It was designed in 1936, and built in 1937 with funding from the Works Progress Administration, and is an example of what has been termed "starved classicism". Its lobby areas are decorated by murals by Kindred McLeary (1901-1949) and other artists, funded by the Treasury Department's Section of Painting and Sculpture.
