The Kingfisher Post Office, also known as The Old Post Office, is the historic former post office in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. The post office was built by the Dieter & Wenzil Co. of St. Louis, Missouri; work on the building began on October 1, 1912, and finished on September 1, 1913. The stucco building has a red-tile hipped roof and cornices on each side. The post office operated until a larger post office opened in 1976.[2]
