Reduce Reuse Recycle

Construction of this building started during the recovery from the 1906 earthquake, which did damage well beyond San Francisco, even though there weren't such major fires here.  The building opened as the Santa Rosa Post Office in 1910, and served that function until the late 1970s, when a new building was constructed for that purpose.  The building was slated for demolition, but a local architect arranged to move the building about three blocks, and re-open it as the county museum and historical society.  This is where I've been working part-time for the last couple of months.  As an exhibition space it has some quirks, but all in all I think it's a pretty good reuse.
