The small post office by Michael Graves is shaped like a silo with playful porthole windows. Celebration's USPS building is often cited as an example of postmodern architecture.

"Its simple massing is composed of two parts: a rotunda that serves as the public entrance, and a rectangular block with an open-air loggia where the mailboxes are located."—Michael Graves and Associates website

Graves' design stands as a foil to the Philip Johnson-designed Town Hall.
