"In 1895 the first-floor was a barber shop; the second and third floors were the same as above. In 1890, this was the site of the Post Office; it had moved here from next door, 516 Court, where it was in 1884." ~ Historic Inventory of Fulton, MO, Missouri Department of Natural Resources


"38. 518 Court Street, c. 1890. Though the storefront and second story windows were modified in the late 1970s, the late Victorian style of this building can still be seen in the pressed metal cornice and facade. The second story fenestration (now filled in with wood siding and two small windows) are separated by classical columns. A pressed metal cornice line extends over a section of pressed metal in a brick pattern. The storefront has been bricked in (1977) with only small windows and modern entrance doors. A corrugated metal canopy extends over the storefront and wraps around the corner of the building. [NC]

"In 1895, the first floor was a barber shop; the second floor was a dentists office and the third floor a lodge. In 1890, this was the site of the Post Office; it had moved here from next door, 516 Court, where it was in 1884. In 1910 and 1917, 518 Court was a drug store. By 1919, a one -story addition had been added at the rear of the building." ~ NRHP Nomination Form

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.
