The US Post Office—Newburyport Main is a historic post office at 61 Pleasant Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. The Georgian Revival single story brick building was built in 1927 to a design by architect James Wetmore. It was Newburyport's first purpose-built post office facility. The building is faced in red brick laid in running bond. Its central section, which houses the lobby area, projects slightly from wings on either side, and features three round arches trimmed in marble. The wings house offices, and the rear of the building houses the service area. The front block has a pitched hip roof, while the rear portion has a flat roof.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986;[1] it was also included in the Newburyport Historic District in 1984.[2]
