In 1930, the City of San Benito donated parkland to the U.S. Government for the construction of a new Post Office at this site. It served the City and surrounding areas from its opening in 1933 until it moved into new quarters in 2001. Appraised at $578, 873, this building was purchased in June 2002 for $75,000 and the City expended $635,000, chiefly from the General Fund and the San Benito Economic Development Corporation, Inc., for its renovation. Much of the renovation work was completed by the City's Public Works Department employees who were instrumental in the daily construction process, thus saving the City financial resources and time. This is a beloved building in San Benito and is expected to continue



to serve as a purposeful business and social gathering place for the community in the years to come.
