U.S. Post Office Building

Constructed in 1915, this building served as the post office on the Cotton Highway until 1936. County Judge S.L. Gladish made sure that the Post office contained European tiles like those used in the then-new courthouse. The building later housed a pool hall when men congregated while their wives shopped downtown.
