Did you know...?

The Postal Playhouse contains a National Geodetic Survey Marker, which is exactly 1,231.26 feet above sea level? Did you also know that this mark is used as a reference point for LeMars street grading, per city code section 138.03? See this page to see the NGS datasheet, and this pdf file (page 17), to see the relevant city codes.

The Postal Playhouse was built in 1914.

The Postal Playhouse was originally the LeMars Post Office, before the post office moved to a location several blocks to the west on 1st St NW.
