After writing a long post about tall trees in a post yesterday, I thought I’d write a short post about a small place today.
Kaweah is home to the country’s smallest continually operating post office.
The Kaweah Post Office was established just up the road in 1890, and relocated twice. It’s been there on North Fork Drive near Three Rivers, California, since 1910. In 1948, California officially designated the Kaweah Post Office as state registered landmark.
My Beloved and I drove by it twice before we discovered it on the windy and forested road. It can’t be more than 36 square feet. But it’s the real deal: I mailed two letters from there, and I know they arrived some days later at their destination.
