Post Office Steps I ,
Downtown Tampa Map
A group of conventioneers on the old post office steps. The Beaux Arts-style building was built in 1905 and was used as a post office, customs house, and court house. In 1998, when the new Sam Gibbons courthouse opened, the building was closed. Recently, the city signed a lease with a company to renovate the century-old building into a 130-room boutique hotel.
