    Completed in 1938, the Englewood post office was the first federal building in Englewood and the only federal building constructed in Englewood as part of the New Deal. Its location on South Broadway helped push the city to grow north toward Denver.

    Boardman Robinson’s “Colorado Stock Sale” mural still occupies most of a wall in the Englewood post office lobby. The post office was threatened with closure in 2010 but was saved after an outcry from local residents and preservationists.
