Welcome to our fifth and final post featuring the Oak Park, Illinois Post Office. For the past few days we’ve been touring this wonderful building. Part one featured the building and artifacts housed here in Oak Park. Part 2-5 featured the four individual murals in the lobby.
There is a lot to see here, I really enjoyed my visit and even had one gentlemen approach me and comment. “They don’t make them like this anymore”. I agreed and respond with something to the effect, “they sure don’t”. I probably never would have know how wonderful this building was had our fan Deb not pointed it out to me.
I’ve hoped your enjoyed this series. What was your favorite part of the series? Do you have a favorite mural? Did you like the Rural Delivery buggy? the photographs in the lobby? Please comment below with your favorite part of the series. And I must ask, what other post offices do would you like to see here on Post Office Freak?
Thanks for stopping by
