Old Post Office and Griffin Building

Old Office Building and the Griffin Building

Name:  Old Post Office and Griffin Building

Date:  2010

Image Number:  CG85cdCG08

Comments:  This building is a two-story, seven bay-wide structure, located at 358 and 370 Valley Street in Scottsville.  It was built about 1840 and may have served as an inn during canal days.  The left side of the building served as Scottsville's Post Office from 1884 to 1914.  The right side of the building was used predominately as a restaurant in the twentieth century.  Until the 1950's, the center door was used as an entrance to the restaurant for African American patrons.  Presently this center door is used to reach the second floor of the building.
