Yes, you may take our photo, if you’ll mention the Fund for Women.

According to Wikipedia ~

US Post Office-Corning is a historic post office building located at Corning in Steuben County, New York. It was built in 1908-1909 and is one of a number of post offices in New York State designed by the Office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury Department, James Knox Taylor. It is a rectangular, one story building faced with pressed yellow brick in the Classical Revival style. The exterior features elaborate terra cotta decoration.[2]
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.

A gorgeous old building, inside and out...

Beautiful floors throughout...

Old lighting - gas? Complete with cobwebs...

Wineglass Marathon Named a Top Pick Among Boston Qualifiers

Wineglass Marathon ~ October 2010


  1. I always loved that post office building. Used to go in there to mail letters to my husband when he was in Thailand. That was before email, Skype, texting, cell phones, etc. THAT was our communication for eleven months and 21 days. Always loved the architecture of it.

    1. What a wonderful story, Patricia. I still like to send and receive postal mail.

      The post office down the road in Bath is ancient, too. My uncle was postmaster there for a hundred or so years :)

      Those old buildings are an architectural treasure, though probably horrible to heat or cool.

  2. I love that there is so much history in a building, makes it very special :D
    And a wineglass marathon sounds like do much fun!
