Fort Worth's historic downtown post office
Downtown Post Office Fort Worth, Texas
The post office in downtown Fort Worth, built in 1933, is not your ordinary square box of a building.
Built under the direction of noted architect Wyatt C. Hedrick, the limestone building is opulent with 16 majestic columns surrounding its classic revival facade. The building is ornate with ample marble and copper details and carved ceiling panels inside. There is even has a gun range inside postal workers were once trained, when they were really serious about protecting the mail, no matter what.
From time to time rumors of its imminent closure or sale surface, but last we heard, it will remain an operating post office for some time to come. Well worth the extra climb of those impressive stairs to mail that parcel to the relatives. You'll feel as if you stepped back in time.
