1. Column 282 reduced

U.S. Post Office, 1933, Wyatt Hedrick, 251 W. Lancaster, Downtown. It ain't called Cowtown for nothing. Cattle helped to grow the early Fort Worth economy and are still an important part of the local culture. So, it's only natural to find cattle imagery everywhere, including the city's main post office where limestone-carved longhorn and Hereford cattle heads decorate the capitals of the building's classical columns. Designed by Wyatt C. Hedrick, one of Fort Worth's most prominent and active architects, the post office interior is exquisitely ornamented.
