More than 200 years old this is the oldest continuously operating post office in the United States. The first postmaster, Nathan Babbitt, was appointed in 1815 and the post office was commissioned a year later. It was originally built as a general store with the post office taking up a small corner of the space. With population growth the post office took over the building. In this small town with a population of 4,000, this historical building attracts tourists from all over the U.S. (Submitted by Shirley Beauchemin Thurston)
