BPS: Stroudsburg, PA 18360

The Stroudsburg Post Office on Ann Street has always been one of my favorites.  It isn't fancy, but that doesn't mean it isn't interesting.

One of the best features is the twin granite light posts that frame the front door.  They remind me of light houses.

According to the Monroe County Historical Association web site, the building opened to the public in July of 1934, and it once housed a variety of federal offices, in addition to the post office.

There's a lot of wood and brick in Stroudsburg.  The limestone here sticks out, but it a good way.
