Historic Post Office Wedding Venue

Historic Mineral Wells Post Office

Though it is now home to the Mineral Wells Women’s Club, this beautiful building was built as the post office in 1913. With the grand entrance, original wood floors, and the old post office teller windows, it’s easy to imagine the townspeople coming to collect and send their mail in the early days. Those same features make the Old Post Office a charming venue for a small wedding.
