Groundbreaking for the Graham Post Office took place on October 15, 1935, as a project of the WPA. It opened on May 28, 1936. The project was completed in 225 days at a cost of $62,000.

In 1993 the Graham Post Office was moved to a new location and the remaining building was purchased by the City of Graham. The Old Post Office Museum and Art Center opened its doors on October 2, 2002, in conjunction with the Texas Cattle Raisers Association’s 125th birthday celebration. It was held on the lawn of the Young County Courthouse.

When you step inside the historic art deco building, you’ll fee the history that has continued though the years. The entrance is a work of art, with rich mahogany wood, glass panels, and the original sienna and brown tile flooring. While building improvements and maintenance have changed some aesthetics of the Old Post Office, the history of the place, is still very much alive.

The OPOMAC is located on the square in downtown Graham, just south of the Young County Courthouse at 510 Third Street.
