US Post Offices in Colorado

The US Post Offices in this nomination reflect a 40 year period (1900-1940) of development of the federal agency in Colorado.  These buildings are well crafted examples of their type or style.  They depict the agency’s goal to improve services and create an imposing, official impression of the Federal government.  Several of these buildings are New Deal projects and thus reflect the Roosevelt administration’s commitment to federally sponsored infrastructure development.
