Long Description:
The historic Wayside Post Office was built in the 1920’s and operated until 1977. When the area was first settled in 1885, the postal service was located in the home of the first postmaster John Hall, back when mail was carried by wagon or on horseback. In 1889, two years after Wayside became an official town, the post office was moved into the general store for the convenience of the townspeople.

After the Wayside Post Office closed, it was moved to the Little House on the Prairie Museum grounds where it can be enjoyed by visitors. This history of the post office is on the wall inside the building.

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