Long Description:
The United States Postal Service is in the early stages of moving services out of this Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, and as of this posting, the future is unclear. It could become Fort Worth City Hall, it could join its neighbor, T & P Station, as housing, it could be sold to private business, or it could be demolished. The building is beautiful, inside and out, and has a Texas Historical Marker with a little background:

The Fort Worth Post Office was established in 1856 with pioneer settler Julian Feild serving as postmaster. The central offices were moved here in 1933 when this building was completed. Designed by the Fort Worth firm of Wyatt C. Hedrick, it features interior detailing of marble, bronze, and gold leaf. Exterior ornamentation reflects the significance of the cattle industry in the development of the area.
Capacity of shelter: 6190

Radiation monitoring equipment: Not Listed
