Inscription. The United States Post Office, which opened in 1916, was the first postal building erected in The Dalles. It was designed in the Roman Classical style under the direction of Oscar Wenderoth, Supervising Architect of the Treasury. Its facing of smooth-dressed Tenino sandstone and the stately colonnade of its two-story porch are distinctive features. It replaced a building used for postal service in another location that burned in 1914.
 
Erected by City of The Dalles.
