Summary

Significance: This building is unusually flamboyant in style for its size. Its highly pitched roof with large eagles on the four corners, its steep gabled windows, and its elaborate terra-cotta ornamentation combine to give importance to what is a relatively small building. Designed as a post office for the city of Clarksville, it is unique in the State.
Survey number: HABS TN-38
Building/structure dates: ca. 1898 Initial Construction
