Other than the Smithsonian, this museum has the most memorabilia in the country. The current postmaster took us on the tour, and you can tell that she has a passion for the history of the Post Office.

This museum is amazing! Great collection of all things postal, including stamps, equipment, vehicles, etc. And it's beautifully organized. The amazing thing about it is that it was all collected by one person. Truly worth a visit. You'll be amazed and delighted and educated!
