Long Description:
Reason for Designation:
The primary reasons for designation are of an architectural and historical nature including that the former Post Office building is an unique example in the Municipality of Institutional International style Architecture with a prominent stone façade and sidewalk promenade facing Second Street. As well, the aluminium-clad windows on the first storey and interior black marble add to the buildings uniqueness. Constructed in 1953, the structure was originally home to the City's Main Post Office. Under a comprehensive Library Relocation project that was completed in 1996, extension attention was given to carrying-out and adaptive restoration and reuse of the structure/site for the Cornwall Public Library. The site continues to act as a focal point for the Community and it an integral component to the viability of the City's Downtown Core.
