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.
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.
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.
