Code Historic Rogers Walking Tour
120 W. Poplar
In 1909 on this site was the Fred
I. Edgar wood yard boasting 5000 sq. ft. of
stacked wood. In 1913 Congress provided $70,000
for land and construction of a new post office
building. The post office was built on the site
at 120 W. Poplar and completed in 1919.
Rogers continued to grow and an even larger post
office was needed. A new building was erected on
W. Walnut in 1963. The vacated building at 120
W. Poplar was renovated, thanks in part to over
$100,000 donated by the Hough-Kimble Foundation,
and became the Rogers-Hough Memorial Library.
When the library moved to its present location
in 1993 the building was again renovated and
became the Education Annex of the Rogers
The Rogers Post Office in 1919, courtesy of the
Rogers Historical Museum.
