surprise

a side trip worth taking. Very surprising with the history inside. Not a problem to park - but lots of stairs

A post office - how exciting can that be - right? you have a surprise in store this beautiful stone building - in addition to stamps, friendly postal employees there are amazing murals done during the time of the WPA - museum masterpieces on view with no charge. A treat for the eyes and an interesting piece of history.

My husband and I had just done Walkway Over The Hudson. We walked to lunch at Mill House Brewing Company and then checked out this place! I had read on tripadvisor to go here and I was glad I did! We got there 5 min before they closed and the janitor let us in to look around. He was really... More

If you have a few minutes, a trip to the post office at 55 Mansion St. is well worth it. It is the most beautiful and fascinating post office I have ever seen. There is 20 minutes parking in front of the building. There are no parking meters. This magnificent stone building was built by the WPA during the 1930's.... More

What a treasure this is! There is an interpretative display with old photos and the inside is all marble and gilt. There is also a beautiful mural extending from the ground floor up. It still operates as a US post office.

People go to a Post Office to do business & in this respect it is O.K.-the building is historic & very nice. What more is there to say.

I see it as privilege to use the post office in Poughkeepsie. It is probably one of the most edifying regarding art and American History. Quite often there are visions to be seen and we don't see and we miss them. Should you have the need to use it, really look and see! The folks who work there are cool,... More
