The post office has always been one of the most important buildings in a community. It was usually built along postal routes that became major thoroughfares of transportation and of communication. This post office served the citizens of New Braunfels for 70 years and the building was built to last. The building will celebrates its 100th birthday this year, 2015.
The post office moved to a new location in 1985. It now serves a new purpose, being McAdoo’s Seafood Company. The post office in downtown served the community of New Braunfels from 1915 to 1985 at which time, needing more space, it moved to Seguin Street where it remains today.
