On August 23, 2004, the post office in Marceline, Missouri (known officially as Walt’s hometown) was officially renamed the Walt Disney Post Office. The proposal for the renaming had been introduced in front of the House Committee on Government Reform on April 3, 2003, and after passing through several committees, it was approved by unanimous consent by the United States Senate on October 29, 2003. This is the only federal building to bear Walt’s name. The post office also has the distinction of being the spot where, in 1968, the Walt Disney commemorative stamp was released along with a ceremony featuring many of Walt’s family and admirers.
