The historic U.S. Post Office and Courthouse in Ada, Oklahoma was constructed between 1933 and 1934 with federal Treasury Department funds. The building is still in use today.[1]

Although the sources at the Living New Deal Website have the follow citations, I cannot find it on any Federal or State WPA Projects listings:

Architect/Builder: Forrest Butler/Clickner Construction Company

This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    It would be interesting to know what material was used in the building, what sort of machinery and how long the project took to finish.
