National Register #88000443
San Mateo Main Post Office
AKA Saint Matthew's Station
210 South Ellsworth Street
San Mateo
Built 1935

Saint Matthew's Station was originally the Main Post Office until 1964, when the Postal Service leased a new facility about five blocks to the north.

The building, which is in good condition, is a fine example of the Mission Revival style of architecture. The design of the building, as well as the murals contained within it, are highly reflective of the early, Spanish-dominated history of the area. Additionally, they are representative of predominant California trends in federal art and architecture of the period in which they were produced.
