County of post office: Gasconade County
Location of post office: 216 E. 1st St., Hermann

"The first part of this two stage building was built by Robert H. Hasenritter in 1869-1870. The building was much smaller comprising the right hand three bays initially. In 1878 Hasenritter expanded the building adding two bays to the façade and lifting the roof over the whole creating two storefronts in one building. In 1885 Hasenritter added to the rear of the building. For many years Hasenrltter, a furniture dealer and maker kept his store in the newer storefront. The one story brick appendage is a remnant of a much larger furniture repair and storage area. By 1898 the furniture store was replaced by the post office. The earlier part of the building was for many years the jewelry store of Hasenrittert's brother Julius. By 1898 the rear appendage acquired its frame second story and open porch." ~ DNR Historic Survey  PDF page 74

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
