Welcome to historic Post— a Texas Main Street City!

Post, Texas, founded in 1907 by breakfast cereal magnate Charles William Post, was truly a "dream city". His vision drew him to one of the most beautiful locations in west Texas - the area where the head waters of both arms of the Brazos River join to outline the scenic caprock escarpment of the Llano Estacado. Here C. W. Post carved a county out of nature's provisions which provided a home for cattlemen, plentiful oil and bountiful cotton.

Within this historic West Texas "dream city", C. W. Post envisioned a community that might enrich the citizens with cultural offerings. Some of the most outstanding attractions to visitors are found in three of the original buildings in the city - the Garza Theatre, which produces eight shows a year including a summer festival, a beautiful Art Center, housed in the historic Algerita Hotel, which offers several shows and exhibits a year including the renowned Spring and Collectors Shows and the Garza County Museum located in West Texas' first sanitarium. Through the community's dedication to its rich history and its commitment to the future, Post was awarded a "Main Street City" designation in 1987. Through the project's economic development and renovation efforts, numerous downtown buildings have been restored that house gift shops, clothing stores and restaurants.

For visitors searching for recreational activities, the 4-day Post Stampede Rodeo, held in early August, offers carried experiences for cowboys and non-cowboys as well as a taste of the true West. The city also affords a swimming pool, a 9-hole golf course nestled in one of the beautiful canyons of the caprock, a city/county park, lake and baseball fields, scenic bike trails and within 30 minutes - White River Lake and Lake Alan Henry.

The friendly people of Post invite you to explore the opportunities we offer you as a visitor - your opportunity to connect to our city's grand past with its dramatic future.
