We are pleased to announce our chapter's collaboration with the Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI) to facilitate knowledge sharing and resources between chapters and APTI. With this partnership, this website will ultimately be used as a tool to streamline sharing industry and APTI news and events.

APT WGLC will continue to develop and improve this site so it can be as useful as possible to our members and friends. Please stand-by as we continue to import information, including photos from past events, and develop our members-only access.

    The Post Office designed by the firm Graham, Anderson, Probst, and White, was originally constructed in 1921; however, in 1932 it was significantly expanded to its current size. The building has been vacant for 20 years and is currently undergoing a restoration to be developed into an office building with retail space on the first two floors. 

    APT WGLC will meet at 4:00 pm at the security office in the center entrance off of Harrison Street and take a brief tour of the interior work in progress. This is an active construction site. Please wear appropriate footwear. Please bring a hardhat if you have one, if not hardhats will be available for loan on site.
