The Little Post Office that Could


It’s starting. The stories about post offices on the brink of close are coming out. Yesterday the adorable blue post office pictured above (the second smallest in the nation) was featured in the New York Times as a likely candidate for close. The article says 3,600 post offices are on the chopping block, but official decisions have yet to be made. It’s a big change that’s coming. The stories, like this one, will be sad. If they do decide to do away with this post office, I hope they turn it into a mini museum. It still has the really old school P.O. Boxes.
