National Register of Historic Places in Pershing County
The Lovelock Main Post Office is a well-preserved and essentially unaltered example of a small-town, single-purpose post office. Of standardized design, the building represents the final phase in the progression of early Twentieth Century federal architecture. The city's first and only federallyconstructed post office, the building symbolizes not only the federal government's recognition of Lovelock's regional importance, but also the link between the local citizens and their elected representatives in Washington D.C. The building and the mural in its lobby are also significant as legacies of the massive public works programs undertaken by the federal government to bolster the economy during the Depression.
