The Buffalo Stockyards once occupied this 100-acre site. A major employer for over a century, the livestock trade supported a variety of meat-packing and leather crafting businesses. On July 3, 1959 the site was selected for construction of Buffalo's Main Post Office. Postmaster General John Gronouski dedicated the building on October 10, 1964.
