Geneseo, IL 61254
January 10, 2012
The weather forecast for the next two days calls for sunshine and temps in the 50’s. Seems like a perfect time to take a road trip and visit some post offices. Geneseo was the first post office I visited on this trip. I was really happy when I first spotted the building, as it is a classic older style building. I was also intrigued to find a survey marking on the building. This is the first building where I have noticed any survey markers associated with the post office. See Pictures below.
No dedication plaque however,there was a corner-stone stamped with the following. A. W.. Mellon secretary of treasury James A. Wetmore acting supervising architect. The date on the building is 1925.
Thanks for reading
