The building was constructed in the Beaux Arts style of architecture and opened in 1901. Its features include brick quoining, elaborate cut-stone cornices at the roof line, original cold-steel wrought iron pieces, and finely detailed leaded-glass windows, hand-carved oak and marbled interiors. The building served as Bristol, Tennessee’s main postal facility until 1983 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1985.
