Downtown Post Office

Downtown Post Office

on Catoma Street sits directly opposite the Davis Building on the site of the old Davis Motor Co (whose mechanic wrecked my Pontiac in 1953, when he took it from the shop to run a personal errand).  This was built in 1977, during the Carter Administration, when our “real Post office” was evicted from the Federal Courthouse. This facility was downgraded to Branch-status when, in 1989, downtown was declared dead  and the main post office was moved 8-miles out to Winton Blount Drive. To us down-towners, this was the ultimate insult.
