Long Description:
This post office is on a historic site. The marker in front has text as follows.

On the site of the Post Office stood a large, white columned, three storied house known as the Stage Coach Inn. Horses for the coaches were changed here and stabled across the road from the inn. As the coach approached Monticello, the coachman blew a loud blast on his horn for each passenger so the cook would know how many guests to expect for supper. A large mural in the present Post Office shows the inn, a coach and early scenes of the town. The first Monticello Post Office was in the Glover house which stands at the division of the Eatonton and Macon highways. The tin mail slot remains in the kitchen wall of this old house.

It is a well kept building serving this historic town which currently boasts that it is the home of Country Singer Trisha Yearwood.

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.
