Has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior

Originally a U.S. Post Office, this building later housed the Red Hound Bar, which opened in the 1930's. During the Great Louisiana Maneuvers that preceded World War II, this bar was a favorite "watering hole" of many military men, including Generals George S. Patton, Omar Bradley, and Mark Clark.

Restored in 2000 by Regionald and Mickie Seastrunk
