Long Description:
"Waupaca, originally known as "The Falls" received its present name when E. C. Sessions applied for a post office in 1851. The post office operated in a number of locations before this building was constructed as part of a WPA project in 1939. Despite modifications to the building when an addition was constructed in 1989, the original mural on north end of the bulding has kept intact."
