of the four oldest post offices currently operating in the US. Opened in 1852 by Jesse Richards, one of Batsto’s most
prominent ironmasters, it served the community for many years. It closed in 1870 when the local
economy failed. It re-opened in the 1880s. closed again in 1911, and was re-opened by the Batsto Citizens Committee
in 1966. As a historical structure, it was
never assigned a zip code. All stamps are hand-canceled.
