The Algerita Arts Center is the home of Visual Arts in Post.  The building is on the National Register of Historic Buildings:  Built in 1907 by founder C. W. Post as a hotel to accommodate prospective customers of farms, business and city properties. 

Time took its toll on the majestic building until in 1984, enterprising volunteers from the Post Art Guild with financial help from the Caprock Cultural Association, created and opened the Algerita Arts Center.

 Center Activities are varied: including art,  photography shows, demonstrations, meetings, classes and workshops, dinner parties and other events. A valuable addition to help develop talents and enhancing arts development in Post.

 The 90 year old building was one of the first structures in Post.  It was saved from destruction in 1978 by the Garza County Heritage Association, and after two renovation efforts, the lower floor was returned to usefulness in 1984.
