Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1914
Building/structure dates: 1894 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1900 subsequent work
Significance: The Old Post Office of 1894 at the corner of 7th and K Streets is an important example of Romanesque Revival architecture in Sacramento. This building with its massive arched entrance and tall rectangular grouped windows, is strongly reminiscent of H.H. Richardson's designs for the Crane Library at Quincy, Massachusetts (1883). The building has high quality, both in its material execution and its general design. Frank Lloyd Wright used the same massive arched entrance form in the V.C. Morris store on Maiden Lane, San Francisco (1949).
