United States Postal Service Main Post Office

Gorham, Maine

This new building, five times the size of the cramped facility it replaced, not only meets current Postal Service needs, but has room for future growth.

A large work area makes mail sorting easier and more efficient, and loading docks will accommodate up to ten rural carriers. Still located in the center of town, the new post office is easier and safer to access than the old and provides ample off-street parking.

The lobby is filled with light from a wall of windows and there is room for display cases for the auxiliary items sold by the Postal Service such as stationery, hats, and phone cards. More post office boxes are available, and a self-service department offers customers convenience.
