'Castle' Post Office - Saginaw, Michigan
This building is known as 'The Castle' and currently houses the Saginaw Castle Museum, a museum dedicated to the history of Saginaw County. The building was built originally as a U.S. Post Office. According to some information I found on the web, the post office was built in 1897 as part of a government program to make government buildings reflect the history of the town where they were built. In this case, the post office was created to look like a French chateau to reflect the fact that the city of Saginaw was established by French Voyageurs. Apparently this government program was too expensive and was scrapped after the first building was completed. Copyright ©2010-2012 James W. Howe - All rights reserved
