    Downtown Post Office

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Oct 22, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Petaluma's downtown post office, opened in 1932, is really a very nice building with tall windows and a lot of ornamentation. The basic style of the building is Spanish Colonial Revival, but it is a heavily modified version of that style.

    There are some great examples of nice Victorian style architecture all around the downtown area. Kind of reminds you of the French Quarter a bit. Take your camera, take a stroll, gaze at some fine craftsmanship, and enjoy that sweet, oh so sweet, California weather
