The northeast corner of the business square in Gallatin, MO, once had this lineup of businesses. The U.S. Post Office was on the corner beneath the cupola with stairs leading to the offices of Production Credit Association on the second floor. Merrigan Super Market is shown at right.

A longtime landmark anchoring the northeast corner of Gallatin’s business square was this stately 2-story brick building. It once was home to Farmers Exchange Bank. At the time of this photo this was the home of Gallatin’s post office, the Bank of Gallatin, and upstairs office for attorney Sam Evans and dentist C.W. Link. Eventually the post office relocated and the bank occupied the entire building, later to become BTC Bank. In 2004 this building was razed to make way for a new banking facility. (photo date unknown)

The United States Post Office rented business space to serve Gallatin, MO, from this building located at 111 South Main Street. (circa 1965)
