governing_body = The St. Johns Station U.S. Post Office is a historical building located in the in the St. Johns neighborhood of Portland,
Oregon, United States.
The St. John Station Post Office is an example of a small community post office constructed in the 20th Century Georgian style (also Colonial Revival-style) typical of Depression Era federal architecture. The building exhibits classical symmetry and proportion, yet is a transitional building in that it lacks the archæological detail of classically inspired federal architecture of the Beaux Arts tradition. The building's Georgian style is suggested in the detailing of the arched Palladian windows and termination of the facade with a molded frieze and cornice.
