Housed in a 1932 Works Progress Administration post office building, this museum building is an architectural gem. Collecting for this museum began in 1987, and has grown into the second largest Postal Service Museum in the country.
As you wander through the six rooms of the museum, you will experience two centuries of postal history, including:
* Old post office window units and lock boxes
* Early 1900s horse-drawn mail buggies
* Inner-workings of a railway mail car
* The first postage stamp and earlier stamps
* V-mail (WWII letters)
* A 1931 Model A mail truck
* Photographs of ancestors who pioneered mail delivery
