Inscription.  [English] Constructed in 1911, this building is typical of the post offices that were erected by the Department of Public Works in smaller urban centres throughout Canada at the beginning of the 20th century. The quality of the design, with its Romanesque windows and large clock tower in the same style, made this an important building in a newly-developing small town, and represented the extension of federal services across the West.

[Francais] Construit en 1911, ce bâtiment est un exemple typique des bureaux de poste construits par le ministère des Travaux publics dans les petits centres urbains de tout le pays au début du XXᵉ siècle. Par sa conception, ses fenêtres en plein cintre et sa tour de l'horloge de style néo-roman, ce bâtiment était important dans le décor des petits centres de l'Ouest canadien et il y représentait l'extension des services fédéraux.
