This art deco gem was uncovered during a renovation in the last couple of years. Before 1957, residents of the town of Richmond Hill had to go to this 1936 built Post Office to pick up their mail. Ten years later it was leased out and soon had her art deco features covered in white paint and the clock and railings removed. Now they are looking for a new tenant.
