Inscription.  Early site of the Granbury post office, this native stone structure was erected by James C. Haynes, postmaster from 1872 to 1874. He sold the edifice in 1878 to Thomas A. Burns, who served as postmaster until 1883. The property was then purchased by Thomas T. Ewell, a newspaperman who published an early history of Hood County. Offices, stores, and cafes occupied the building until 1975, when it was restored by Dick and Sunny Allen for Hood County Title Co.
