5738 Main St.
Sylvania, OH 43560
My sources informed me the Sylvania post office had artwork. So when I entered the address of the Sylvania post office into my GPS it took me to the newer post office. As I was waiting around the parking lot of the newer post office, a local had entered the building.
I asked if he knew where the original old post office was located. He knew immediately and told me it was located right downtown. He had mentioned it was now a law office. That was about all he know about it. He said to look for an old brick building with an Attorney sign out front. Since I didn’t know the address I wasn’t able to enter it into my GPS. We found the down-town section, its pretty easy to recognize the older buildings once you have visited many. So I immediately spotted it when we drove down main street.
Some investigation work and some local knowledge is about all it takes to find these nice gems. I’m really happy to have found it and get these photographs. Tune in tomorrow for the Plaster Cast artwork that was once installed in this post office. You can now view it on display at the new Sylvania Post Office.
