Notes
Survey number HABS FL-523
Building/structure dates: 1912 initial construction
Significance: The U.S. Post Office and Courthouse is significant as an example of Depression-style federal construction designed by local architects and built by local contractors using locally available materials. As a result, features, such as the recurring marine motif in the decorative details and the use of coquina limestone and key stone, give the government edifice a distinctly Miamian character.
