La Jolla Post Office

The La Jolla Post Office Building has been a focal point and neighborly crossroads for several generations living in the "village." The attractive Spanish Colonial Revival building, built by the Federal Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression, also contains an art treasure in its lobby, a stunning mural of La Jolla Cove painted in 1939 by one of San Diego's most accomplished, early 20th-century women artists, Belle Baranceanu. The post office is now a potential casualty of U.S. Postal Service downsizing. So far, widespread community opposition has stalled the process of closing and selling the building, but its future remains precarious.
