The construction of the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse at Aberdeen followed the creation of the eastern division of the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Mississippi, in 1885. The supervising architect designed a Romanesque building of red pressed brick with gray stone and terra cotta trim. Mifflin Bell also decorated the courtroom, located on the second floor, with ornamental plasterwork, marble, and wood.

The Office of the Supervising Architect altered the building's design only once during its long tenure as a post office and courthouse. A rear extension, completed in 1932, enlarged the post office's work space on the first floor and the courtrooms on the second. The federal courts and the post office vacated the building in 1974, and the federal government sold the property to Monroe County, Mississippi the following year. The county renovated and adapted the building for use by the Monroe County Chancery Court, Board of Supervisors, and the Office of the Superintendent of Education. The chancery court currently uses the old federal courtrooms.
