Wichita Falls, TX US Post Office and Federal Building

U S Post Office and Federal Building

On a recent unexpected trip to Wichita Falls, Texas, I found myself downtown at the post office mailing some letters for my sister.  Since I love a post office, I whipped out the iPhone to do my best to capture this 1932 post office designed by Voelcker & Dixon.  Voelcker & Dixon designed a number of courthouses and federal buildings in Texas after setting up their business.

The $750,000 building was approved (Abilene Reporter News, 5 Apr 1931, p. 15) under President Hoover’s building program that saw a number of federal buildings erected between 1931 and 1932, including Jackson’s former U S Post Office and Courthouse.

    What a nice find! I love the details and the newspaper caption was very newsy to include the new Education Building of the FUMC! Was there a mural inside?

    I intuited as much; when speaking of murals, “new PO” means “I have not seen it before.” 🙂
