Truxton
"A town in the southwest part of Prairie Township. Robert B. Allen, the founder, was born in Virginia, October 6, 1808 settled in Lincoln County in 1840, and built the first house in the village in 1843. Although the place was originally laid off in 1845, this plat was not recorded. In June, 1852, Mr. Allen secured the assistance of James, Reid, the county surveyor, and again laid out and platted an addition to the place. He lived there to his death in 1875. The village was named in honor of Captain Thomas Truxton (1755-1822), distinguished as a commander of privateers in the Revolutionary War. The post office was established by 1876." ~ (Postal Guide; COUNTY ATLAS 1878, 14; HIST. LINCOLN, 451-2; TROY FREE PRESS, Feb. 19, 1886, 1; Andy J. Brown)

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.
