Customs House

The back of the historic Customs House in Key West. Built in 1891, this building was once a post office, customs house, and Federal courthouse where shipwreck salvage cases were heard. The inquiry into the sinking of the USS Maine was held here. It is Romanesque Revival architecture, the finest in the state, constructed of red brick with terra-cotta trim.
