Long Description:
"Prior to the construction of this building in 1915, Sparta's post office was housed in a variety of buildings such as the nearby Masonic Temple. Although the initial federal appropriation for the post office was secured by Congressman John Esch around 1910, it was not until 1914 that $60,000 was set aside to construct this building. Construction of a federal building in Sparta marked a major development for the community.

This property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
