The US Post Office—South Hadley Main is a historic post office at 1 Hadley Street in South Hadley, Massachusetts. The single story Classical Revival building was constructed in 1940, and occupies a prominent position facing South Hadley's common. Its facade is relatively plain, fronted by a series of limestone columns and topped by a limestone entablature, which extends around the top of the building. The walls are predominantly brick, laid on a granite foundation, with granite steps leading to the main entrance. Despite modernization in the 1960s the interior has maintained some of its original features, including marble wainscoting and some woodwoork.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
