Bridge in 1934 in the 20th century post-war American public architecture style.(1) It was constructed of stone and yellow fire brick, and is one story with a basement and mezzanine.
The building served as the city’s post office when it first opened, and then as a federal courthouse from 1961 to 1999 when the new Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse and Federal Building opened.(1)(2)
