Building History

This US Post Office in Aberdeen, WA, was being planned while two men served as Supervising Architects of the US Treasury, Oscar Wenderoth (1912-1915, [born 1871-died 1938]) and James A. Wetmore (1915-1934, [born 1863-died 1940]). Wetmore commissioned the Seattle architectural firm of Henrikson and Company, Incorporated, Engineers and General Contractors, to erect the building. A note in the American Contractor of 04/29/1916, stated:“U.S.P.O. Henrikson & Co., 232 Globe bldg, Seattle, secured the contr., at $74,658, for the U.S.P.O. at Aberdeen.” (See “Public Buildings,” American Contractor, 04/29/1916, p. 21.)
