National Register #85000123
Oroville Main Post Office
1735 Robinson Street
Oroville
Built 1932-1933

The Oroville Main Post Office is the only federal building in Oroville. Although the building had no influence on the development of Oroville's architectural tradition, it remains one of the most monumental buildings in town.

The design of the building is a rare example of the transition from the Renaissance Revival style to the Starved Classical style.
