Free list of postmasters

Abraham Lincoln was a Postmaster?

Yes, he was according to USPS Newslink.

"He became Postmaster of the now-closed New Salem, IL, Post Office in 1833 in Sangamon County. But the Post Office in Pike County’s town of New Salem is still active, to the relief of Carolyn Baker, its current Officer-In-Charge."

For a list of who’s in charge at your favorite Post Office, check out Postmaster Finder — the USPS historic record of the nation’s postmasters, listed by Post Office.

And if you have questions about the website, go to FAQs about Postmaster Finder. Or, send an e-mail to with thoughts and comments or to request a hard copy of the list.
