Circa 1903

Although a United States Post Office was established in New Iberia in 1814, local postal facilities were housed in rented space throughout the 19th century. In march 1899, through the efforts of Congressman Robert Broussard of New Iberia, congress appropriated $50,000 for a new Post Office building. Several sites were offered, but this one was selected as most aesthetically desirable. Construction began in 1902, and the Post Office opened for business on October 10, 1903. It continued in operation until 1964 when the building was purchased by the present owners. The building is reminiscent of the Federal style in its construction and architectural details.
