Old Post Office, The
This compelling National Historic Landmark -- a rare surviving example of the second Empire style used widely after the Civil War -- exists in a nearly perfect state of preservation, thanks to extraordinary original construction, the preservationists who saved it from the wrecking ball and a collaborative effort of restoration and redevelopment in the mid-2000s. What once stood at the cutting edge of 19th century technology now stands at the cutting edge of historic preservation, as a building restored to its original state of beauty and integrity. Unique space within the Old Post Office is available for parties, weddings, meetings and more. Capacity: 300.
