Collectible Christmas Ornament: U.S. Post Office Building
A limited-edition collectible brass Christmas ornament featuring the U.S. Post Office Building at 113 E. Eighth St. is now on sale. The 12th annual ornament sale is a project of the Georgetown Main Street Program. A limited number of the ornaments are available.
Ornaments may be purchased at the Visitors Center, 103 W. Seventh St. The cost of the ornament is $20. Payments by cash, check, or credit are accepted.
The building served as the post office from 1931 until 1991 when the City of Georgetown purchased the building to be used as City Hall. The city will be selling the building in early 2019 to a private developer, who plans to repurpose the building for a ballroom, restaurant, and bar.
All proceeds from the ornament sale help fund Main Street projects and the Façade Fund Grant Program.
