The building used to be a storage facility for irrigation pipes of an adjacent tomato farm. It was converted into a post office in 1953, after a fire destroyed Ochopee's previous post office, located in the Gaunt Company Store. The post office is fully functional, serving a three-county area, including the surrounding populations of Miccosukee and Seminole Native Americans. Tour buses often stop at the site and the postal clerk is asked to cancel letters with Ochopee's postmark.
The Wooten family has owned the property since 1992. Its USPS internal site designation is 1842US.
