Old Post High School
Old Post High School. Built 1928, incorporating in lower walls native Garza County stones from the town's first (1909) school, erected soon after the founding of city of Post. This historic preservation occurred under leadership of Supt. John E. Watson, outstanding educator, veteran of World War I service in the heroic Rainbow Division. The Parent-Teachers' Association backed Watson's stand, and bond issue passed in spite of adverse circumstances. When later growth called for a larger educational complex, to meet community needs, this became Post Junior High School. Historical Marker text, 1968.
