My Commentary
Building appears to be currently unoccupied. It also appears to be of need of some maintenance. There are just some old buildings one can look at and say - "That was an old Post Office". In this case, I surmised this correctly even before pulling up the National Register Application. I was disapointed that I could not find a cornerstone, though.

This building is not too far from the Battle of Lexington State Historical Site. Also, there are over 500 buildings in three separate National Register Historic Districts to see. This is a very historic town in Missouri.

290. Old Post Office (100 S. 13th Street)
c. 1912.
Two story Beaux-Arts yellow brick. Flat roof, large arched portal with console decoration. Rectangular windows topped by palladian-type round-arched windows with central key stones. Stone trim. Interior details relatively intact, with skylight and brass postal box. Used for school administration offices.

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.
