The post office of Cimarron, Kansas. Cimarron is just over 2,100 people and is the county seat of Gray County. There was actually a "war" fought between the towns of Cimarron and Ingalls in 1889 to become the county seat. Not only was the war fought in court, but a battle took place that ended up with one dead and three wounded. The matter wasn't settled until 1893 when Cimarron became the permanent seat. . . . #postofficesofkansas #postoffice #thepostalproject #discoverkansas #explorekansas #usps #uspostalservice #writemoreletters #sendmoremail #kansas #ruralks #ruralamerica #cimarronks #graycoks

I found a post office! The sign says the area is known as English Turn - where the French turned back the Brits in 1699, dissuading them from establishing a settlement. The nearest town's name? Braithwaite. Doesn't get much more British than that. Guess we didn't turn back too far 🤣 • #onlylouisiana #braithwaite #thepostalproject #uspostoffice #usps #postoffice #turnemaround #andaroundagain #settledanyways #90DaysToTheGulf

46706. Post Office. Auburn, Indiana . . I had the chance to visit the Cord Deusenburg Car Museum in Auburn, IN. It is set up like an Art Deco car dealership from 1920s-30s. They have a beautiful PO & library.

Not terribly pretty, not historic (perhaps a touch vintage?!), but it is functional, and most importantly around here, it simply *is*! Mother Nature can be a bit rough on southern Louisiana. This is a very typical example of post offices in the area. They all started with two awnings, most now have 1.5, or .5 and .5, or .75 and none..but they are still here, still standing, and still operating 😁📮 . #thepostalproject #uspostalservice #usps #postoffice #90DaysToTheGulf

Wawanesa, Manitoba. R0K 2G0. Pop. 594. * Wawanesa was originally called Sipiweske. The word Sipiweske (pronounced similarly to "Sip-O-Whiskey”) means "light through the trees" in Cree. In 1890, under the influence of the temperance movement, the town changed it's name to Wawanesa, which may come from the Ojibwa word waa'oonesii for "Whip-poor-will”. * * * * #canadianpostalproject #canadian #canada #canadapost #thepostalproject @canadapostagram #postoffice #exploremanitoba #manitoba #smalltown #exploreCanada #rsa_rural #archilovers #postal #snailmail #architecturelovers #historic #architecturelovers #architectureporn #oldbuildings #youvegotmail IG: @CanadianPostalProject Email: CanadianPostalProject@gmail.com

I love old post offices! You know I do! And this gem in Pelham, TN reminded me that, when on a road trip, always take the scenic highway. Man, that’s actually a deep message! 🤯 #thepostalproject 📭 DEE

Selkirk, Manitoba. This breathtaking, decomissioned post office was a post office from 1909 until 1957.

I got super violently ill with the stomach bug right before New Years and I feel like it’s either come back or still hanging on. What does this post have to do with this picture? Absolutely nothing.😂 I just don’t want to document the stomach flu. Because that’s gross.🤢💩🤮🤷🏼‍♀️ But I still oddly want to document it for my Insta journaling purposes. And I shot this picture at the post office for @thepostalproject and thought it turned out pretty. (A goal for 2019 is finding more beauty in the mundane.) And wouldn’t you rather see a pretty picture of the post office than of ... well ... the alternative?😉 #tmi #iknow #thepostalproject

Seneca, SD. Population 38. ..... Starting the year off with one of my favorite parts of 2018! Post offices! I started photographing them on a whim and then accidentally found a great group of people (with even more fervor for post office documentation than me) via Instagram. It has been so fun to see their posts and talk to them about their great finds. And now some of my images are in an archive! Social media definitely has its perks, and this is one of them :) . . . #postoffice #thepostalservice #thepostalproject #southdakota #ruralsouthdakota #midwest #ruralmidwest #midwestisbest #oldbuildings #roadtrip #ipulledoverforthis #latergram #culturallandscape #contemporaryphotography #contemporaryartist #documentation #typology

The post office of Plains, Kansas. This town of 1,200 is located in Meade County and is known for having the widest main street in the United States at 155 feet and 5 inches across, store front to store front. When asked why such a wide street, the surveyors answered, "There was plenty of no-good ground, so it just as well be in a street." And that's my wrap for 2018. I started this project in 2016 and I'm ending the year having visited 205 post offices in that time span. By this rate, I might have seen them all by 2023. 🙄 Here's to a new year! Be safe if you're going to celebrate tonight. . . . #postofficesofkansas #postoffice #thepostalproject #discoverkansas #explorekansas #usps #uspostalservice #writemoreletters #sendmoremail #kansas #ruralks #ruralamerica #plainsks #widestmainstreet

The post office of Liberal, Kansas. This city of 20,500 is the county seat of Seward county in southwest Kansas. The town is allegedly named for the phrase "That's very liberal of you" because one of the earliest settlers to the area, S.S. Rogers, would give free water to travelers - a very kind gesture in an area not known for its abundance of surface water. Apologies for the bad angle of this picture; it's a long building and it's difficult to get good pictures on a morning when the post office is open. . . . #postofficesofkansas #postoffice #thepostalproject #discoverkansas #explorekansas #usps #uspostalservice #writemoreletters #sendmoremail #kansas #ruralks #ruralamerica #liberalks
