USPS continues to reduce rural Post Office hours

By Karen Holzer
Only a short time ago, a drive up Main Street in any small town would find you beneath a US flag billowing in the wind, marking the location of the community’s post office. Winds of change have swept over the countryside, however, and
with it, the changing role of the main street post office. As the United States became settled and towns were established,
post offices were a vital component of the official status of the community. Paperwork was sent to Washington, DC for approval to name the town and designate a postmaster. Local landmarks and the longitude and latitude of its location defined the town and placed it on maps. The town would then have mail delivered by the United States Post Office to
residents.
