Marker Text The first Eagle Pass Post Office opened in 1849, the same year Fort Duncan was established. The post office changed locations several times before 1912, when this building, designed by U.S. Postal Service supervising architect James K. Taylor, was completed. When a new postal facility opened in 1964, this building was converted for use as a public library. It is a well-preserved example of the Renaissance revival architectural style. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1996
