THE UNITED STATES POST OFFICE AND COURTHOUSE


New Haven, CT - The United States Post Office and Courthouse was constructed in 1913-19 as the city's second Federal building; designed by New York architect James Gamble Rogers. The building is located on the west side of the New Haven green. The building was slated for demolition in the 1960's in an urban renewal scheme but it was saved by a coalition of Federal judges and local preservationist. It was restored in the early 1980's at a cost of over 7 million dollars. Upon completion, the building was devoted to the Judiciary and the Department of Justice, and renamed the United States Courthouse
