Post Office restored to former glory

The USPS NewsLink reports that earlier this year, the town of Mountain Ranch, Calif., rescued its oldest — and smallest — Post Office from oblivion.

According to the publication, "With much fanfare, the town’s residents recovered the diminutive structure from a location several miles outside Mountain Ranch. The building — suffering the effects caused by years of neglect — was returned to the town it served from 1869 until the mid-1950s. "

Shown above, in a USPS photo, is Postmaster Betsy Alberts as she raises the flag over the town’s newest and oldest Post Office.

Mountain Ranch, a town of 2000, is located 75 miles southeast of Sacramento.
