The 90-year-old multistory brick building dedicated in 1931 as the Prescott Post Office has been sold to undisclosed buyers at a price not announced, Postmaster Brian Wade announced June 22.
Even so, a portion of the building will continue to serve as a post office. It is located at 101 W. Goodwin St. However, main postal services will be handled through the post office at 442 Miller Valley Road.
Wade said the portion of the building that serves as a post office will soon be remodeled; customer service will continue through the remodeling. He also said the 700 post office boxes will be retained but will be consolidated during remodeling. Some customers have had the same P.O. boxes since the building first opened.
The 25,788-square-foot building is three stories with a full basement. It also contains a two-story courtroom.
The Beaux Arts-style building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
