Beautiful Post Office: Willows, CA

About 85 miles north of Sacramento off I-5 lies the town of Willows, population 6,000. At the center of town lies a beautiful post office dating to 1918. It features a grand interior and a vaulted portico that might not be too out of place at a cathedral in Europe. I took several photos of the location last summer.

The Corinthian columns and carved stonework are uncommonly ornate and, fortunately, appear to have been well-maintained.

The brick face for the sign rather spoils the appearance.
