::  Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse

Architect/Builder: Oscar Wenderoth /  F. G. Tarbell Co.

a. This three-story, Neo-Classical building was the first major federal facility to be constructed in Miami. In contrast to the classically-inspired architectural details, the building's Spanish tile roof and wide overhanging eaves are adapted for the local climate. In 1937, after the federal offices moved to larger facilities, the building became the home of the first savings and loan association to be chartered by the U.S. government. The Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
