The Pātea Post Office (cnr Egmont and Stafford Streets) was officially opened on the afternoon of 11 October 1923 by the Hon.J.C.Coates, the Postmaster General and Minister of Public Works and Railways. The contractor was Mr A.C.Bignall who presented the Minister with a suitably inscribed gold key to open the door and officially mark the opening of the building. The cost was estimated to be £7,500.

In 1991 the post office was sold and converted into a private residence. The building sold again in January 2020 after being on the market (TDN 2 August 2019)for a number of years. The asking price was $239,000 and considerable work may be needed to earthquake strengthen the building.
