James A. Wetmore, Architect
— 1927 - 1929 —This impressive limestone building with its two-story Ionic colonnade is one of Madison's finest examples of the neo-classical revival style. Wetmore was acting supervising architect for the Department of the Treasury and this and similar designs were used in many medium-sized cities across the United States. This building replaced the former post office and courthouse (1870-1929) that was located across the Square at E. Mifflin St. and Wisconsin Ave.
