IS THE OLD POST OFFICE ?
|The Old Post Office is actually
just that, a beautiful and majestic three story building
constructed of Indiana Limestone and completed in 1916. The building was originally
home to the Western Nebraska Federal Court and Post Office for McCook, Nebraska. The
Federal Court was moved to North Platte, NE in the 1950s while other State and Government
agencies took up office space in the building. In the 1980s a new post office was
built several blocks to the West of the original building. The building sat vacant
for a number of years before being purchased by Nathan's parents, David and Sharon
Huegel. It is now home to David and Sharon's Antique
Shop and Nathan's office and Postcard Shop. You can visit either of our shops
in person at the top of the Main Street on Norris Avenue in the wonderful downtown
shopping area of McCook, seasonally by chance or by appointment.
Old Post Office Postcards is
owned by Nathan and Crystal Huegel.
Nathan's family has been in the Antique Business for over
30 years. Nathan has been dealing exclusively in postcards, photographs, and misc.
paper ephemera since 1999 and has developed an extensive clientele.
We have a
reputation for being fair and honest in our dealings and love to build
with our clients. If we haven't done business with you yet, we hope to have
opportunity to help you acquire pieces
for your collection.

postcards. There are over 2,600 scanned images of Nebraska

along the left edge of this page. You can also make an
appointment to visit us in person, see us at one of the many
Antique and Postcard Shows
we do annually or just browse our inventory
"virtually". Feel free to send us a request
of the town you are looking for and we will check our inventory of nearly
10,000 Nebraska views. Our inventory list here is no-where
close to what we actually have and is changing all the time.
If you are looking for a particular card, town or type of card just let
us know via email and
We will get back
with you promptly. If we don't have it now, chances are
we can find it for you.
We have a real appreciation for better real photo postcards picturing Real Photo Americana,
Social History or US State Views and have thousands of those types of cards in
our inventory. Although the card indexes at left are mostly Nebraska views
we do have many
other States and Topics available for sale. Please feel free to contact
your collecting interest. We have many other views listed on
ebay on a daily basis We are hoping to get the site updated
with additional State and real photo
topical views as time allows.
If you are ever traveling through the Great Plains you could
always try to stop by and visit. We are approximately 70 miles South of I-80 / North Platte and 90 miles
North of I-70. Please contact us first before traveling a
distance in case we are not available. The McCook area has lots to offer with a nice retail district, parks,
museums, hunting, fishing, and several lakes within a 30 mile radius. There is
plenty of quality lodging and even a free campground. Find out more about McCook here.
