Deter Post Office

PO Description: 

Each post office record includes one or more documents. Each document may be displayed (by clicking on the title) and may be downloaded. The documentation has been provided from government records, copied for SOHS by Ben Truwe.

 

Named for local cattle rancher David M. Deter, this post office was a flag station two miles south of the summit tunnel in the Siskiyous on the SP rail line at "old Gravel Pit Spur" one mile NE of Colestin. Grace Deter was the only postmaster. Deter post office's closing, like Siskiyou's, came with the decline of railroad stops and better rural mail service.
