Historic California Post Office Saved

Forty-five Kaweah, Calif. residents will continue to pick up their mail at the 100-year-old Kaweah Post Office thanks to a last-minute effort to save the service according to an article that appeared in California's Visalia Times Delta.

Reporter Teresa Douglass pens, "The 10-by-12-foot wooden post office was built by local cattlemen in 1910, according to Dody Marshall of the Three Rivers Historical Society. The men paid $2.50 each for the lumber and built the post office with their own hands."

Shown here, volunteer Kevin Foster picks up his mail at the Kaweah Post Office. Ken volunteers to keep the post office boxes functioning.
