2. Valdosta City Hall (south entrance)
(marker is mounted just to the right of the doorway)
The current post office on North Patterson Street was completed in 1969 to replace the 1910 facility. In 1970, the City of Valdosta purchased the building, and restored it. Sadly, in August of 1987, a burglar set fire to the building. Luckily, Valdosta firefighters were able to save the landmark. It now houses City Council Chambers, as well as the offices of the Mayor, City Manager, City Clerks, and other local government staff. In 2010 the city of Valdosta commemorated the 100th anniversary of the current City Hall building with a re-dedication.
