Long Description:
From the plaque on the building -

The Old Federal Building

It was completed in 1903 and served as the Post Office from 1906-1965.

The three story (plus basement) building was constructed at an original

cost of $78,000 with a total floor space in excess of 20,000 sq ft. It was

constructed of hard-burned, dark red brick with white mortar and facings

of hard limestone with terra cotta cornices. The first floor is 16 feet high

and originally housed the Post Office. The second floor was devoted to

the US Court. The building is now owned by Boone County and houses

county and state-county funded offices.
