Description

The former building for the Downtown Orlando Post Office, located at 44 East Central Boulevard in Downtown, Orlando, Florida. From 1917 to 1941, the Orlando post office was housed in a building on the corner of Central Boulevard and Court Avenue and was known as the Federal Building. This building was home to the post office and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offices, and was the meeting place for the World War II draft committee. In 1941, the post office moved to its new location on Jefferson Street, but the Federal Building remained. In 1962, the Federal Building was bought by Ivey’s department store. The building was demolished to make room for a new parking lot. Today, the location is home to a BankUnited.
