This renaissance revival building was constructed as the fifth location for the Hillsboro Post Office. Work was begun in 1912 and completed three years later under the direction of Architect James Knox Taylor. The building's design features a tiled roof, an ornate arched entrance arcade and elaborate detailing of terra cotta and stone. Used as a post office until 1967, it was later adapted for use as the city's public library. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1982
