ABOUT THE OLD POST OFFICE
Next to the Arch and our sports stadiums, the Old Post Office is perhaps the best known and most memorable buildings in downtown St. Louis. Constructed just after the Civil War to house all federal offices in St. Louis, the Old Postoffice was one of the most structurally advanced buildings of its time. However, St. Louis quickly outgrew the building, reserving it for its postal services. The Old Post Office is truly a piece of American history and is registered on the National Historic Register. Over a hundred years old, the entire structure is due for renovation. WithBSI Constructors Inc., James G. Staat Tuckpointing and Waterproofing Inc. has secured a contract for masonry preservation work including restoration cleaning, tuckpointing, and an impressive amount of joint sealant renewal on the Old Post Office and Customhouse. With the restoration cleaning already in progress, we look forward to a quick and successful operation at the Old Post Office.
