The United States Post Office is a historic post office building located at Little Valley in Cattaraugus County, New York. It was designed and built in 1941-1942 as a Works Progress Administration project, and is one of a number of post offices in New York State designed by the Office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury Department, Louis A. Simon. It is a one story symmetrically massed brick structure with a stone watertable in the Colonial Revival style. Its design is the same as that used in 13 other post offices across New York State.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
