History and Architecture 

In 1966 New Albany's Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse was built to replace the city's original U.S. Post Office and Federal Building constructed in 1887. The current building's repetitive arches and surrounding portico are said to pay homage to the steamboats associated with New Albany's history.
