Long Description:
The third owner of this property was Horace Forbush who took the Post Office into the store where it remained until 1885 under various managers . In 1921 the Post Office returned to the building with Myrtice S. King as the postmistress. She and her sister, S. Etta ran a dry good store in conjunction with the mail. The center part of the building at that time was the Community Store run by Leroy W. Prentiss, and the third section was Henry Allard' s Barber Shop.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
