Many Historic Buildings may face tough times as Post offices close

A post office located in a building once owned by Ben Franklin is just one of many historic buildings housing post offices that could face hard times with the announcemnt of potential closings by the cash strapped postal system.

The announcements may affect post offices in many poorer urban as well as many small towns.

Some post office buildings were built, or redone during the depression under the WPA program. Preservationists and business community leaders are already getting together to come up with creative ways to save or reuse these structures.
