Historic Architecture Downtown Richmond:
A Walking Tour
Football Hall of Fame
U.S. Post Office Federal Building
North "A" and 9th Street
French Renaissance (1904-1905)
The design of this building was provided by the office of the
supervising architect of the treasury, James Knox Taylor. This
architecture gave the Post Office identifiable, specifically
governmental quarters as opposed to rented ones. The raised basement and
walls, of Bedford limestone, impart a suitable monumentality, linking
this as a government building like others in Washington, D.C., and in
the nation. The Indiana
Football Hall of Fame now occupies the building.
This is the web-based incarnation of a brochure originally published in
2010. While the history is still
very valuable, other information may no longer be accurate.
Information updated by WayNet will be listed in this maroon color.
