The News Center

The Lawrence U.S. Post Office was built in 1906.  The building served as the Lawrence post office until 1965 when a new postal facility was built.  Later used by the University of Kansas, the building was purchased in 1999, rehabilitated, and renamed The News Center – serving as the combined offices for the news staff of the Journal-World, Channel  6 News, and World Online.  The architects for the project were Treanor Arachitects of Lawrence, Trapp and Company Interior Design, and Harris Construction, Contractor.
