This rather unique building was constructed in 1939 to serve as a U.S. Post Office under the direction of local postmaster Clint Wallis. It was the town's first post office to be built especially for that purpose. All previous post offices operated out of general stores or in one case during the early twentieth century, the residence of the postmistress. After a new post office was built on East Polk Street by the U.S. government in 1956, this building was sold. It has been used for a variety of commercial enterprises ever since.
