Waldoboro, ME

The original Custom House and Post Office, at 908 Main Street in the coastal city of Waldoboro, Maine, designed by Ammi Burnham Young and built in 1855. Young (1798 – 1874), we are told by Wikipedia, was an American architect whose work transitioned from the Greek Revival to the Neo-Renaissance style. “His traditional architectural forms lent a sense of grandeur and permanence to the new country’s institutions and communities,” including Waldoboro.

Amazingly enough, the building is still standing, and it’s for sale! For just $349,000 you can live in the post office. Even more astounding, there are only two bedrooms and one bathroom. And it looks so palatial.
